HTS Witbank to become a major force in SA eSports

2015-02-08 10:20

HTS Witbank Mind Sports Club was only established by the school in 2013. However, due to an incredibly supportive Headmaster and an Educator that does not quit, the club has grown from strength to strength.

The club is of course the brain-child of Morizane Boyes who has sunk much of her time and effort into the club.

But she does not do it alone, Morizane encourages the buy-in of each and every member. As a result, she acknowledges the work of the Club Captain, Douglas Tollemache, to be instrumental to the club's growth.

Morizane is more than aware that the club is more than just games and that it is about promoting people and unlocking the potential that each member has.

As a result the club now boasts a new record of 115 gamers of which 30 of such gamers are females.

This makes the HTS club the leader in terms of female membership.

But the club does not just boast of having a strong membership, the club also has gamers of exceptional standard.

Morizane herself has Protea Colours for Mind Sports having represented South Africa in the MWEB Team eSports South Africa in the IeSF's 6th World Championships – Baku.

However, the real star of the show is Kyle Turnbull who first appeared on the competitive gaming scene in 2013.

Kyle's game is FIFA '15, and since he entered competitive gaming, Kyle has won every single senior Provincial and S A National Championship in which he has played.

Kyle's performance is even more remarkable considering that he has not lost a single game in any of the senior championships that he has played and that he is the youngest FIFA player to ever be awarded Senior National Federation Colours.

Thus the HTS club with its unique blend of enthusiasm, skill, dedication, and experience seems to be ready to stamp its authority on the South African gaming scene.
