After two stints with Dignitas, CAth has returned to CLG Red
CLG have announced that former Dignitas fe member Catherine "CAth" Leroux has joined CLG Red on trial.
While the corresponding move was not announced by the team, Dust2.us have been informed that Benita "bENITA" Novshadian has been benched. This would seemingly be corroborated by the fact that the team played their ESEA Advanced match tonight — a 19-22 loss against Collateral — with CAth instead of bENITA.
bENITA was a founding member of CLG Red, having been with the team since they were first signed in July of 2015. In that time, the team have won titles at ESWC, WESG, and Copenhagen Games. bENITA's move to the bench leaves Diane "di^" Tran as the longest-tenured member of CLG Red.
CAth was also part of the original CLG Red squad, but left in May of 2016 before going on to play with Selfless fe and Dignitas fe twice. Her most recent stint with Dignitas fe ended at the beginning of the month, after a 3rd/4th place finish at Copenhagen Games. CAth had the following to say her trial with the team:
[I'm] super happy to be reunited with my old time teammates Diane and Goose and excited [about] what we can do with this lineup. I'm also excited to play with Jen and Emy, because they're players with a lot of potential and raw skill.
As of now, CLG Red's roster is:
- Diane "di^" Tran
- Jennifer "refinnej" Le
- Emma "Emy" Choe
- Mounira "GooseBreeder" Dobie
- Catherine "CAth" Leroux (Trial)
- Stephan "vEz" Vezina (Coach)
- Benita "bENITA" Novshadian (Inactive)
After tonight's loss, CLG Red are 3-5 in Advanced, with their next matches set to come against Unbroken and Holo.
With Dignitas fe garnering the North American invite to the upcoming DreamHack Showdown, CLG Red will have to go through the qualifier if they wish to attend the $100,000 event in Valencia.
