SAHETI has a proud tradition in esports. Having developed Gabriella Isaacs who served in MSSA's 2012 Protea Esports Team at IeSF's 4th World Championships - Cheonan, and is the only South African to have earned a silver medal at IESF's World championships, the school has consistently maintained a high standard.
Thus at MSSA's 9th Online Schools' Provincial Championships played on 9 February 2018, SAHETI again entered a team of high quality into the DotA 2 esports title.
Going into the third round unbeaten, SAHETI faced off against the indomitable Paul Roos Gimnasium DotA 2 team. The match was indeed hard fought and ended up with Paul Roos Gimnasium snatching victory to end the championship having won all their games.
Nevertheless, such was the standard of play by SAHETI, and although finishing in second place, the team has managed to finish in second place, the team has managed to finish in pole position in the rankings.
