Canon-Mac's Esport team won its first championship in late April 2023. The Varsity Super Smash Bros. Ultimate team consisting of Armin Rejaie (11), Dale Wieczorek (11), Christopher Thomas (11), and Hayden Steele (11) beat Wilson High School in a decisive 3-0 sweep in the PlayVS Eastern Championship.
This is the equivalent of winning States except even harder because they faced off against teams from multiple states on the East Coast. They came in first out of 167 schools that competed in the Spring season. Next the team goes on to Nationals where they compete against other championship winning teams and have the opportunity to win prize money in the form of scholarships.
This a huge accomplishment for the kids, the Esports program, and Canon-McMillan as a district,
"I'm unbelievably proud of the team and the work they put in to achieve this. This marks the first of many championships for the CM Esport Dynasty!"
