Tuesday night Bethany Lutheran College awarded its first $1000 esports scholarship for Super Smash Bros Ultimate at Buffalo Wild Wings.

The super smash bros tournament, hosted by Radio Mankato, Bethany Lutheran College, Mt Dew AMP Game Fuel and Buffalo Wild Wings was the first of its kind.

“The event went better than planned. We had a great turnout, put on a great event and had a chance to recruit some talented players,” said Seth Grabow, head coach of Bethany’s Esports varsity team. Nearly 100 people attended the event and 60 participated in the tournament.

Coach Grabow, “Best Buy giving away a Nintendo switch was the highlight of the night for me, that and awarding an esports scholarship.”

Bethany Esports hopes to host similar events in the future.
