What do you get when you combine a Nintendo Switch, Xbox, PS4, and 48 lucky Duhawks? The College Activity Board (CAB) Video Game Tournament. On Mar. 6, CAB hosted their Video Game Tournament for the second time. This year they made some changes to the tournament schedule in order to include more students. Hosted in Ballrooms C&D, the 16 open slots were quickly filled as participators eagerly waited their turn.

On the Switch this year was “Super Smash Bros”, on the PS4 “NBA 2K20”, and the Xbox “FIFA 2020”. Finally, no video game tournament is complete without food, pizza, chips, brownies and soda. The fun started at 8 p.m. and lasted until 11 p.m. with The Switch bracket finishing first and junior Ben Degen being crowned the “Super Smash Bros” winner. Second to finish was the “2K20” bracket completion with first-year Josh Oglesby as the last man standing. Then to finish off the night, senior Ryan Gooch took home the “FIFA 2020” champion title.

“I think the Video Game Tournament was a big success! We had many people to show up to play, and watch the tournament,” commented senior Liam Knudsen.

CAB would like to thank everyone who signed up to participate and for their excellent sportsmanship throughout the tournament. In addition, CAB would also like to give a big shout out to the Smash Bro Club on campus for helping out with the Nintendo Switch set-up and bracket.
