Ethan Kranert – Mustangs Ahead

(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL)- As the LRHS esports season wraps up, Mustangs on the team are planning for the future.

During the last meeting, team members discussed various topics including game scheduling, player expectations, and others.

They also addressed communication within the club, as that is a large part of being a player.
Another large part of the meeting was spent discussing the community and adding members to the club.

Mustang esports coach and reading teacher Kari Keech-Babcock said, “Next year, we have a big focus on growth and creating a larger community. I’m very excited about the plan we put into place and what the team hopes to accomplish next year!”

They plan to have many opportunities for new members to join during the upcoming year.

After the informational segment of the meeting, all the club’s members got together to have snacks, play some games, and have fun.

 “The end of the year meeting was a great opportunity for us to finally come together to discuss our plans for next year as well as wrap up the current year. It was nice to see everyone interact and share in the community of gaming whether it was playing the card game Uno or playing Mario Kart on the [Nintendo] Switch. I felt it was a nice rejuvenation and reminder of why we started the program.” continued Keech-Babcock.

Esport Mustangs voted to maintain their competition in the Electronic Gaming Federation (EGF), which they’ve used for the past two years.  In 2020-21 they were on PlayVS. Ultimately, they voted to go with EGF because of its flexibility during previous years and low cost.
