A State Title in Video Gaming?

What are the chances of an IHSA state title in video gaming?  It’s now a discussion item, but Mercer County High School athletic director Andrew Hofer says it will be a tough sell for districts that are lacking in financial resources.

Last month, the IHSA Board of Directors heard a presentation from IlliniCloud on sports/e-gaming and the involvement of high school students in the activity. The IHSA is now officially tracking member schools with e-sports programs via its Emerging Sport/Activity tracker.
