Spartans Esports

The Spartans esports team at Marian Catholic provides a competitive, yet friendly gaming environment. All students are welcome to tryout for any of the games we compete in. 

What Is Esports?

Esports (also known as electronic sports) is a form of competition using video games. Esports takes the form of organized, multiplayer video game competitions between other competitors. 
We play in the IHSEA league which consists of other high schools across the state of Illinois. IHSEA gives us the opportunity to play in 3 seasons with 6 different games. IHSA just recently added esports to their list of sports leading up to a state tournament near the end of the school year.
