Re: STARK at Louisiana (Mo.) HS - 12th January 2019

A couple items to point out as registration continues: 1) STARK is the successor to Hannibal's tournament, TWAIN. I am appreciative of Hannibal HS's administration for their support of TWAIN the previous two seasons. 2) Teams are not considered in the field unless and until signed up through our Goo...

2018 Sparta Fall Tournament - 27th Oct 2018, Sparta (Mo.) HS

Our initial field is full! If we are able to secure enough staff, we will consider an expansion to 24 teams. Given that this is the first year for Sparta hosting, if we expand the field to 24, we won't expand further.

Citing monetary issues from maintaining the four-quarter format, MSHSAA has adopted a more streamlined 26/26 format. It's essentially an NAQT 22/22 packet with 4/4 math computation adde...

We have enough staff commitments to confidently raise the field size to 36. This does mean that if realized, we will be qualifying nine teams for NSC.
