On Saturday, Graceland Esports will hit the road for Iowa City as they compete for the top prize in the GGLeagues fall Iowa season. Entering the post-season tournament as the second seed, Graceland now remains the favorite. Graceland has defeated teams from Kirkwood, Northwestern College, Waldorf, two University of Iowa teams, Northern Iowa and others on their way to the finals. With only one loss in fall competition, Graceland has a laser focus on the championship.

“We feel really good as we head into Iowa City tomorrow, said coach Jared Doty. “Our team is hyper focused in scrimmages, making great plays and adjustments in matches. I’m really proud of their accomplishments so far this season.”

The Graceland Esports team is composed of Nathan Sowers, Travis Aldrich, Jared Connell and Alex Young, with student coach Christian Purcell, and will be accompanied by team director/founder Jared Doty.
