On Saturday November 12, 2022, Eastern View High School’s (EVHS) Esports teams attended an in-person tournament, the Fall 2022 Kettle Run Invitational. Kurt Mergen at Kettle Run High School in Nokesville, VA hosted the event. Eastern View’s teams competed in League of Legends, Smash Bros., and Rocket League.
Five other high schools participated in the competition including Kettle Run, Osbourn Park, Gainesville, Manassas Park, and John Champe.
The EVHS League of Legends team brought home a second place trophy for the school. EVHS placed fourth in Smash Bros. and Rocket League.
EVHS Esports coach Jessica Carpenter said, “Normally we compete virtually with other schools but being able to meet face-to-face with other teams was great. I know that my students made some new friends and enjoyed chatting and learning from other team members. It was refreshing. These are things we can sometimes miss out on in a virtual world.”
