Many Hutchinson Community College students fill their time with various activities.
If you enjoy filling your time with video games then there could be quite the opportunity for Blue Dragons. The Blue Dragons Esports team is having open tryouts on Feb. 3, from 1:30 p.m. until 3 p.m. at the Esports room in the basement of Parker Student Union. Signs will direct prospects on where to go.
The games that students interested in trying out should prepare for are “Overwatch”, “Call of Duty: WarZone”, and “Rocket League”.
If the idea of playing video games and maybe even making friends doesn’t sound great enough, then maybe this will – there are two scholarship opportunities that participants will be competing for.
“We will watch for in game ability, teamwork, and communication,” said Esports coach Heath Hensley.
Students can expect a “fun yet hard working atmosphere.”
For those interested in trying out, Hensley said that practices are held all throughout the week to help with work and class schedules.
“It’s left to each player when they practice,” Hensley said. “Each team is required to enter and participate in a ranked tournament this semester.”
Interested students should pr-register with Hensley via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Those trying out are required to wear their masks.
