|Northcliff High School grabbed the 'lion's share' of titles at MSSA's 10th Annual Online Championships for High Schools.|
Teams from aroundd the country gathered at schools, or at previously approved locations, to fight for glory and honour.
Judging by the winners of each gamee title, it is becoming clear that certain schools are beginning to take ownership of the title. The schools are blessed with hard-working and dedicated educators who give up their own time to ensure the success of the school and the learner.
It is interesting that with the educator moving from SAHETI to Redhill, success has followed the educator, which further re-inforces the belief that without proper management, the team has even greater odds to overcome.
Another encouraging feature is that more provinces saw teams being awarded High School Provincial Colours. With five (5) provinces seeing colours being awarded, it is clear that Gauteng and Western Cape provinces no longer totally dominate esports in South Africa and that there is a more general standard of excellence than ever before.
It should be noted that Provincial High School Colours are awarded immediately to the members of the team who win each and every game that they play in such 10th Annual Online Championships for High Schools.
The members of the teams that have finished in the top three also immediatel qualify for 2020 National Team Trials. It is at such National Team Trials that MSSA shall select its team to attend International Esports Federation's (IESF) 12th World Championships - Eilat.
