Crandall High School E-Sports Team came out number one in the State of Texas.
Throughout the past few years, the amount of clubs and organizations within Crandall High School has been increasing. One of the more popular organizations to arise was the E-Sports team led by Mr. Regester. The students within the organization play a multitude of games and often will specialize in a game they feel they are the strongest in.
Crandall High School has a Fortnite team and is a part of the Texas E-Sports League, courtesy of Vanta. Recently they entered a competition, and out of 69 teams, 43 schools, and 211 games, our Pirate E-Sports Team came out number one in the State of Texas. The team consisted of five CHS students, Antonio Castillo, Levi Luna, Daniel Martinez-Cerna, Dasia Washington, and Novaa Garrett. They ended the competition with a total of 1036 points. They were more than 400 points ahead of second place. They annihilated the competition!
According to Mr. Regester, the students practice twice weekly and then play on Fridays in the Fortnite Competition. They have two hours to compete and win as many matches as possible. They had been playing since September 26.
When asked about his feelings about the big win, he said, “ It is awesome to see my players shine. I'm looking forward to seeing them qualify for the finals on December 17.“
Crandall is proud of these students and wants to congratulate the pirates on their much-deserved victory.
