KHSAA has recently recognized E-Gaming as a sport. High Schools all around Kentucky, including Lafayette, are beginning to form E-Sport teams.

Lafayette’s current team first started out as a gaming club, which eventually turned into an official E-Sports team. Lafayette’s team is coached by Ms. Sumner. They meet every Monday after school and compete in matches on Tuesdays. Each match lasts around 45 minutes to an hour. The team currently has 27 people.

In order to compete in a tournament, the team needs at least seven players. Lafayette currently only plays League of Legends competitively, as it is the only game verified by Fayette County. The players communicate through a Discord server. Discord is a platform that allows people from all over to come together and talk to each other through text, calls, and video calls.

A typical practice with the E-Gaming team is very laid back. It involves playing various games such as League of Legends, Super Smash Bros, and Smite. While playing these games, the students share gaming tips and help each other out, which can improve how the team works together during tournaments.
