A Look into This Year’s ESports Season


By Hannah Butler 

The Esports team has been practicing hard this year. They are currently in their off-season and will be competing the spring semester. COVID-19 has affected many sports, but Esports hasn’t been hit too hard. They can still practice on campus and from home, but tournaments and competitions have been put on hold.   

    In addition to “League of Legends” and “Overwatch,” they now have a new Valorant team. The game came out of beta and has become very popular among gamers. They are currently working on setting up competitions for Valorant and have some set for League of Legends and Overwatch.   

    Jonathon Horton, sophomore, said: “I’m very excited for the new season of League of Legends, though I’m worried it won’t be very diverse for the first few months of the new season coming out. I’m nervous about the competition we will see this coming semester, as it will be one of the first times, we’ve had multiple games competing in one semester. It will definitely be an interesting time for the E sports scene this spring.”
