eSports Team Takes 3rd At State

On Friday, April 29th, the “Golden Hawks” competed at the 2022 Spring NSeSA State Esports Tournament held at York College in York, NE.  Kaden Langford and Sam Hindman played their first match against Wynot, NE Team 1 at 9:00 AM CT.  The competition was fierce with Wynot managing to pull just ahead of the Hawks in 3 of the 5 games needed to win the match.  Many of the coaches and organizers of the event said that the games were some of the closest they had seen.  Kaden and Sam said they had no regrets and felt that they played extremely well.  The next match the Hawks played was to determine who the 3rd place winners would be.  As fate would have it, they played a second Wynot team(Team 2) and ended up beating them quite soundly thus securing a 3rd place win!  It is rather unfortunate the way the bracket turned out that the Hawks were unable to compete against the team who finished in 2nd place(SEM Team 1).  As our substitute player, Jett Rasmussen, said, “I think we could have come away with the 2nd place medals had we been given a chance to play them.”  In any case, we were very pleased with our performance with this being our first trip to state competitions and “there’s always next year!”
