Over the weekend, your Loy Norrix Super Smash Brothers Ultimate team was in action at Northwood University to compete for a state title. After a shocking first round loss, the team fought through the loser’s bracket to secure a third place finish. Led by stellar play from Adam Ismaili-Alaoui, the team played resiliently all day. With key contributions from Keng Wee and Loden Krieger, senior captain Gabe Vroman was faced with a win-or-go home situation and came through in the clutch time after time to secure the 3rd place finish out of more than 25 teams. If you see them, be sure to congratulate these players on their amazing accomplishment!
