On April 13, Taft’s eSports team defeated the Naperville North Huskies in a Valorant match.

This pushed them ahead into in-person Semifinals on April 16th against the Barrington Broncos. The Broncos have had a great season, so this game held high stakes.

Unfortunately Taft was no match to the Broncos and lost that qualifying game. “The Valorant players played valiantly and grew their teamwork throughout the set but it was not enough to overcome the eventual Champions, the Broncos,” said eSports Coach Nguyen, “If Taft was going to lose to anyone, it would have to be the champions themselves.”

“If Taft was going to lose to anyone, it would have to be the champions themselves. For what limited resources and time the team got in our eSports lab, they did well to place 5th out of the entire state.”
