Congratulations to the Marion Giants e-sports team on their state championship!
The Giants defeated the Scottsburg Warriors 10-3 in the state finals Super Smash Bros. match on Tuesday, Feb. 23.
This is the Giants’ first e-sports state title. The team first competed in 2020.
The e-sports team is now recruiting members for their spring season, which starts March 1.
The Giants practice and compete in the Afena FCU Giant E-Sports Arena at Marion High School. Giants e-sports connects with schools across the state as part of the Indiana High School Esports Network.
The Giants have also been able to connect with the larger gaming community, including Pacers Gaming (in partnership with the NBA’s Indianapolis Pacers).
E-sports is a growing field, both at the collegiate level and the professional level. E-sports opens up lots of exciting opportunities for our students! We are proud of our Giants e-sports team and their outstanding achievement with this first state title!
