@Shahar ben ezra: you should transpose the way your table is arranged, otherwise it will be a nightmare to work with (both in Excel and MATLAB).

The answer would be relatively straightforward, as well as much more efficient, if you would orient your table the other way. With data such as yours, table is really designed to be used this way:
>> Name = ["roni" ; "tim" ; "jon" ; "lie" ; "kim"];
>> TestScore = [90 ; 45 ; 67 ; 84 ; 32];
>> T = table(Name,TestScore)
T =
5×2 table
Name TestScore
______ _________
"roni" 90
"tim" 45
"jon" 67
"lie" 84
"kim" 32
Then you could sort the table using sortrows:
>> T2 = sortrows(T,"TestScore")
T2 =
5×2 table
Name TestScore
______ _________
"kim" 32
"tim" 45
"jon" 67
"lie" 84
"roni" 90
