The SGS Esports teams compete in Super Smash Ultimate and Valorant, with their first matches on Oct. 5th. Super Smash took a win against Ontario High School (Oregon) by using good communication and overcoming the challenges of latency — the lag time between moves in an online game that can affect a player’s reactions. The Valorant team faced off against a highly ranked team and took a loss, but they were able to encourage each other and learned a lot.
“The competition is fiercer this year and our Valorant team is new,” says coach Ross Miller. “I am excited to see how each player grows in sportsmanship and maturity while deepening friendships within their teams.”
Matches are Wednesday afternoons (no spectators); the teams include:
Super Smash Ultimate
Gabe Gustafson, Gibson Montogomery, Ronan Gortler, Eli Sieber, Liam Brennan
Travis Morris, Pierce English, Matthew Schultheis, Preston Sevigny, Jaden Young, Julius Schwaiger, Andre Jiang
