eSports Team Bringing Home Wins

eSports Team Bringing Home Wins

eSports are gaining immense popularity, with the Network of Academic and Scholastic eSports Federations having 3,500 clubs in the U.S. and members in 70 countries. Notre Dame is actively and successfully participating in this growing program. Some colleges even offer scholarships for students majoring in STEM subjects who want to pursue competitive gaming.

The scholastic sector of esports is thriving, thanks to the accessibility; despite some skepticism about the academic value of games like Super Smash Bros. or Brawlhalla, the growth of scholastic esports demonstrates its inclusive nature and the social-emotional learning opportunities it provides.

Notre Dame's eSports Club, moderated by Mr. James Gibilisco, recently made its mark on the competitive esports scene by participating in the following competitions.

Mario Kart 8— Placed 2nd overall, qualifying for the Online Nationals from May 30 to June 2, 2024. The students were Sonal DeSilva '24, Max Whittle '25, Zach Malus '26, and Simeon Salins '27.

Splatoon 3—Placed 4th overall, qualifying for the Online Nationals from May 30 to June 2, 2024. The students were Clayton Kulessa '24, Max Corallo '24, Andrew Malham '26, and Thomas Italia '27.

Brawlhalla—Jordan Dillard and Jean Lotin played in the Eastern Conference against 233 participants. Jordan placed 2nd overall, and Jean placed 3rd overall. They lost in the Wild Card round of Nationals.

Beyond high school, esports are a big deal at colleges and universities. Some have competitive teams and academic majors in esports, business management, communications, and media and design. Mr. Gibilisco looks forward to growing the club and its teams in the coming years.
