LAWTON, Okla. (KSWO) - The Esports team is only in its second year, and they’ve made it to the State finals twice.

The Mario Kart team from Cyril made it to this year’s finals along with Cody Young, a senior, who will compete in Madden.

Young said he’s been playing Madden for 4 years and is happy that something he started playing as a hobby could help him get into college.

“I didn’t think that a school like OU would come and let me a tour, even the whole campus, not just the Esports facility. And, I was really shocked but I guess it proves that I have been doing good in Esports and I should have other schools looking at me If I win this championship,” Young said.

Cyril’s Mario Kart team is ranked #1 in the state and is currently undefeated.

The team even includes a young lady named Skylar, who their coach said is the fastest in Mario Kart.

The State finals will be held Thursday, Dec. 8 at the University of Oklahoma with the Mario Kart Match at noon and the Madden Match at 3:30 p.m.
