Hello everyone. I held a 16-team tournament at Parkway Central high school in suburban St. Louis yesterday (Chesterfield, Missouri, to be precise), which was run with official untimed NAQT rules on NAQT IS-89A. The teams were divided into two brackets of eight with a round robin in each. After lunch, the field was divided into a championship bracket of six teams, a middle bracket of six teams, and a bottom bracket of four (although the entire bottom bracket dropped out).
After ten rounds, St. Louis Priory was 10-0 and Parkway Central A was 9-1, requiring an advantaged final. Parkway Central A surged from behind to win both games of the final and the championship.
First final game: Parkway Central A 275, Priory 185
Second final game: Parkway Central A 325, Priory 130
Villa Duchesne and Parkway Central B were tied for third and thusly tied for the last HSNCT qualifying spot, requiring a one game playoff between the two. Villa Duchesne won a competitive match, earning their first-ever nationals bid.
Third-place game: Villa Duchesne 285, Parkway Central B 230
Trophies were awarded to the top three teams and a selection of books offered to the top eight individual scorers. Full scores and stats will be posted as soon as I receive the SQBS files and can get results posted.
