West Genny Esports team wins championship – Eagle News Online

The West Genesee Smash Ultimate Esports team of Matt Keiling, Derek Sweeney, and Grant Mathews won the East Coast Championship for the spring season.

They were among 187 teams that were in the competition.

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 take part in these competitions.

The program garnered a great deal of interest with more than 60 students initially taking part.

The school districts looks forward to the program growing and expanding into the middle schools in the upcoming season.
