Well, you are in luck, because we had tryouts on 9/6, and 9/7, as well as tryouts occurring on Tuesday 9/12, and Wednesday 9/13.

Such as the question of what she is exactly looking for in a Esports Athlete, Ms. Hunter, Esports Coach and Teacher of Algebra A, B, 1, “Grades, dedication, and skill.” Another inquiry to Ms. Hunter was about the amount of dedication she wants out of someone, and how often she wants them to come by to practice, Ms. Hunter, Esports Coach and Teacher of Algebra A, B, and 1, “They need to give me 3-4 days a week starting in mid-to late September.”
