Morizane Boyes entered eSports in 2013 and she quickly stamped her authority on a number of games against top players to become a serious challenger to the status quo.
Boyes met all the requirements to become a National Umpire on Saturday, 16 August, and by being a fully-accredited MSSA national umpire, Boyes is the only woman in South Africa that may umpire every level of South African championships.
This includes from Regional and Provincial to National level championships, as well as at the national team trials at which the MWEB Protea Team, that will attend the 2014 IeSF World championships Baku, will be selected.
Boyes epitomizes all the best qualities of a competitive sportsperson as she not only volunteers to run the club based at the Technical High School in Witbank, but she also actively coaches and promotes the growth of eSports among the youth.
In a statement, MSSA said: “Without doubt Morizane has broken a number of barriers in eSports, and the MSSA expects her to carry on breaking even more.”
