The Long County Super Smash Bros Ultimate teams are winding down the Spring 2024 season. On Wednesday, March 27, the teams both won crucial matches in regards to their state playoff seedings.

Splash Smash matched up with West Laurens while Tsunami Tsmash played Swainsboro. Both teams went on to win their matches 3-0.

For Splash Smash, Ben Stokes was up first using his old main character of Steve from Minecraft. He beat his opponent handily, winning the first games 2 stocks to none and 3 stocks to none to win the set 2-0.

Patrick McClennon was up next and, after mistakenly using the wrong controls in the first game, lost the first game 3 stocks to none. Using Pokemon Trainer, McClennon went on to win the next two games 3 stocks to none and 1 stock to none to win the set 2-1.

Kody Heredia did not have to play his set as West Laurens did not have a third player present, giving an automatic set win to him and match victory to Splash Smash.

After starting the season 1-0, Tsunami Tsmash went on a losing streak as they dropped their next four matches. They finally turned it around when they defeated Swainsboro 3-0.

Deron Cummings, Isaiah Griffin and Maliki Reese all defeated their opponents 2 games to none to win their sets.

Splash Smash is now 3-3 on the season while Tsunami Tsmash is 2-4. They will both be off for Spring Break and will earn automatic victories.

This will put Splash Smash at 4-3 and in a position to make the state playoffs for the fifth straight season. The top 64 teams in the state make the playoffs.
