eSports squad wraps up inaugural regular season; Team Smite wins first playoff match
For the Tomahawk Leader
TOMAHAWK – After the Tomahawk Hatchet eSports team’s first regular season came to an end in late April, Team Smite defeated Monroe in its first playoff match last week.
Coach Paula Norman said Team Smite, composed of Jacob Anderson, Tim Herman, Zach Suchomel, Dylan Guilliaume, Gavin Myre and Wyatt Leasure, fought a tough Clinton team in the final regular season match, but ended up losing the battle after 25 minutes. The team finished the season with a record of 5-3, earning fourth place out of eight teams in the division.
Team Rocket League was forced to forfeit its final regular season match due to not having enough players to compete. Their record was also 5-3, but because the team was JV, their season has reached its end.
Team Smite took on Monroe in its first playoff match on Wednesday, April 28. Tomahawk went into the showdown as the higher seed and emerged with the win.
“The team has been practicing and strategizing for this moment, and each week I see their confidence and teamwork improving,” Norman stated.
Team Smite is set to face top-ranked Muskego Wednesday, May 5 in the second round of the playoffs.
