League of Legends School rankings: Hoërskool Wonderboom still ranked as top school.

Hoërskool Wonderboom's League of Legends esports team.
With Empangeni High School's convincing victory in  MSSA's online school league, the school shot from being unranked to being the second ranked school team in the country.

It is no mean feat to move up 187.5 seeding points in only one event, and it is credit to the standard of play exhibited by the team that the team did so well.

However, even with Empangeni's rapid rise to the top,  Hoërskool Wonderboom has maintained its position as being the top ranked team in the country.

The school League of Legends rankings continue to grow from tournament to tournament. Suchh growth is testament to the willingness of schools to recognise esports and to commit bot time and resources to the sport.

Without the growth of esports at school level, it is unlikely that the standard of South African esports would ever really improve as the schools provide the sport with a strong foundation.

However, MSSA is mindful of the fact that there is still much to do at school level, and such will be a hot discussion point at its 33rd Annual General Meeting on 3 December 2017.
