No.

I would have been personally interested in seeing the outcome of a match between St. Martin's and Jesuit. The tournament was completely finished at 4:30, though, and I'm not sure if there would have really been time. I didn't even get home until after 9 pm because I had to drive back to Shreveport.

Keep in mind that the use of divisions is not set in stone for future years. I think this issue will be discussed a lot over the summer.

The stats are now up on the NAQT website: https://www.naqt.com/stats/tournament-teams.jsp?tournament_id=8033
