eSports at CBHS

16 Sep 2022

Reaching the Final 8 in the National Competition.

We’ve had success again this year with eSports.

Our Senior Valorant team of Jacob and Zephryn Hinman, Caerus Tee, Yong Sun, and Thomas Redfern have defended our South Island title and have progressed to the final 8 in the national competition. They have also offered to help run a teambuilding event for Sport Canterbury after seniors leave to demonstrate the teamwork and skill involved.

We didn’t have enough players to field a League of Legends team this year so Tianze Wang and Luke Canovan have been competing in a combined Burnside High School / CBHS team and also won the South Island competition (we won this last year). Fin Cresswell at Burnside deserves a massive shout out and thank you for taking these boys under his wing and supporting them far better than I could.

The top three NZ teams in each game are invited to live finals in Auckland which are a curtain raiser (or early main event) for the New Zealand eSports Federation national finals during the school holidays.
