Shout out to the Kirtland Central Smite Team, silver medalists in this year's ESports NMAA Smite Championship!
Smite is a free-to-play, third-person multiplayer online battle arena video game. The game has multiple player versus player modes, many playable characters, and has a successful ESports scene with multiple tournaments.
Jose Castro, Martin Charley, Tovi Curley, Joshua Eaton, Dylan Eaton, and Myles Nocki took second place at the competition, which is especially sweet considering the team formed just in February of this year (and in Bond Wilson’s first official year)!
“I’m really proud of them. I told the players that it is amazing that in 25 games we’ve only lost 4,” said Travis Clary, Kirtland Central High School Coach.
“We are very thankful that Central Schools provided funding to participate in ESports. It has just started and it is already a great experience,” said Milo McMinn, Coordinator of Bond Wilson Technical Center.
To participate in ESports, the players must have a 2.5 GPA or above. This year, Central Schools had teams from Kirtland, Newcomb and Shiprock participating in the ESports NMAA Smite Championship, which took place on April 27.
