Electronic Sports (eSports) at St. Andrew's Schools came back better than ever this past semester. Our student eSports teams, led by Director of Technology Peng Ratchaworapong, playing a highly organized competitive environment. The team competes in a single games against multi-players from other schools.
At least monthly this fall, there were games happening in our tech room as our keiki battled for glory against other local schools online. But eSports isn’t just about the healthy competition or even getting in some much-needed gaming time. For our students, it is a learning and growth opportunity.
“If eSports is going to teach you anything in life,” Ratchaworapong stated,“it's to never give up and don't worry about things you can't control. You can't control how good the other team is or if they're better than you. You do your best, you show up and if they don't show up, they lose.”
Students show up to compete againstHawaiʻi private school teams, which operate under the Interscholastic League of Hawaiʻi (ILH), playing games such as Fortnight, League of Legends, Rocket League, and Splatoon League, which are some of the biggest online multiplayer games around.
Good luck to our eSports students as they continue to compete this year! Be sure to follow us on social media to see game highlights and victories through the winter and spring semesters!
