Also, this tournament is Platinum certified by the Partnership for Academic Competition Excellence, so the top 25% of the field will qualify for National Scholastics Championship as well.

In addition, we'll be instituting a waitlist, with a likely field expansion in the near future.

Thank you to all teams who came to the tournament!
We broke playoff record ties for the upper bracket based on head-to-head and playoff PPG, giving the following top 4 teams:
1. Montgomery Blair C
2. Montgomery Blair B
3. Centennial A
4. Montgomery Blair A
Those teams qualify for NAQT's High School National Championship Tournament. Along with teams placing 5th and 6th, St Anselm's A and Centennial B respectively, those teams also qualify for PACE's National Scholastics Championship.
