Salpointe’s inaugural varsity League of Legends (LoL) team earned state runner-up in the 2020-21 AIA season. The state championship match against reigning champ Brophy Prep occurred on May 4, 2021. The Varsity LoL Esports athletes are excited to receive medals for being state runner-up!!! 

On May 11, 2021, our JV LoL team competed in their first playoffs match. In the fall 2020 season, three of Salpointe’s four esports teams qualified for playoffs: Varsity LoL, Varsity Rocket League (RL) and JV RL. 

This school year, due to the pandemic, teammates practiced and competed from their own homes. They communicated via Salpointe Esports’ own Discord channel and in-game chats. 

The team’s esports athletes met in person for the first time on May 7, 2021, at Round 1, a multi-entertainment complex that offers bowling, arcade games, billiards, darts, table tennis, and refreshments. awards and varsity letters were announced and distributed. Varsity letters were awarded to those of us who competed on varsity in the fall, spring, or both.
