The National Association of Collegiate Esports stripped Baylor University of its Collegiate Chess League championship title last week after the governing body confirmed Baylor cheated in its championship match against Texas A&M University-San Antonio’s team, according to chess team captain Eli Campos.
Atul Rao, Baylor chess club president, reached out to Campos to apologize for the incident on April 30.
Campos said the team was given the update on April 28 through a Discord message board by NACE admin Joe Bruin.
The match in question took place on April 15, where Baylor beat A&M-San Antonio 11.5 to 4.5.
The Mesquite has reached out to the CCL for comment but it did not respond by publication.
The story is developing and will be updated as more information becomes available.
