Maryville University has swept a courageous Western 3-0 to claim the 2019 College Championship. The Saints, top seeded by many pundits going into the last week’s final series, lived up to expectations.
Highly regarded top laner Aiden “Niles” Tidwell didn’t disappoint with strong performances, however both jungler Andrew “ckg” Smith and midlaner Michael “Wolfe” Taylor handed in stellar performances, with Smith in a MVP-winning deathless finals series, and Taylor dying only once. While Western star Shorthop anchored a brave Western effort, MU’s lane dominance underwrote a strong win.
This is the second time Maryville has lifted the trophy, having won in 2017. This year’s championship saw 354 college teams battle. The RSAA (Riot Scholastic Association of America) salutes Maryville University, 2019 College Champions!
