Southeastern Oklahoma State University now has their own eSports team, SEsports.

The team was formed at the beginning of the fall semester and has been working diligently to achieve two important goals: to grow the team and earn a grant to build their own facility on campus.

Nicholas Ratgen, a Computer Science major and the president of the team, stated, “Next semester we are joining the official league, so we will have a normal season. Kind of like the football team, we have matches weekly.”

The team will post flyers around campus with information about how to join in the spring.

On Nov. 6, the team competed in their first collegiate tournament against the University of Central Oklahoma’s eSports team in the OACE UCO Valorant Invitational.

Although they did not win, the match got their feet wet, and they plan to win future competitions next semester.
