ACHS Indians fall 2-0
in first Esports contest
The Adair County High School Esports team lost its season opener last week with a 2-0 decision to Williamsburg.
“I’m really proud of how the guys played. Williamsburg is a good team, but we held our own,” said ACHS coach Jared Redford. “It was two really close matches, especially considering we were in our first match ever.”
The individual game scores were not available.
“We aren’t far away from being a pretty good team,” Radford said. “When we get more practices and more matches under our belts, we’re going to be in a really good position. It is just a matter of time.
“I am happy the guys finally got a chance to compete. It’s been a long road that started almost a year ago. I was proud of the result no matter what it was.”
Adair County will be back in action on Tuesday. The Indians, as does every other Esports team in the state each week, will log into a gaming service and be randomly paired with another high school for that week’s contest.
