Congratulations to our Smash Ultimate Esports team of Matt Keiling, Derek Sweeney, and Grant Mathews who won the East Coast Championship for the Spring Season! This championship had 187 teams compete, so this is a great accomplishment!
Esports, electronic sports, is a field in which individuals and teams compete for top scores in a range of video games. Unlike traditional sports these teams compete against schools from all across the East Coast and as far west as Indiana. Esports is growing fast and expanding into new schools every year and creates opportunities for students to earn college scholarships to hundreds of colleges.
This is the first year that West Genesee has had students compete in these competitions, and the interest is there! We had initially over sixty students attend the interest meeting and we are looking forward to growing these numbers and expanding into middle school for the upcoming seasons!
Thank you to coach/advisor Scott English and all of the participants for a great season! If you have any questions about how to join the Esports program please reach out to him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
