Post by Mahavishnu » Thu Jan 31, 2019 3:45 pm

Acting on behalf of the University of Florida Quiz Bowl Team, I am proud to announce our mirror of NAQT's Sectionals set on February 9th, 2019. This tournament offers the only competitive opportunity for teams to qualify for NAQT's Intercollegiate Championship Tournament, and is suitable for players of all skill levels.

Gameplay Format

Rounds will consist of 22 tossups and associated bonuses divided into two untimed 11-question halves. Other rules can be found here.

Eligibility:

If you don't know which division one of your teams would fit within, please consult NAQT's eligibility requirements.

Tournament Site and Time

We are currently still waiting on room reservation officials to get back to us, but in all likelihood, the tournament will be held in either Matherly Hall, on the northeast corner of campus, or in Little Hall, on the center of the eastern side. This post will be updated when our information changes. Our field cap is similarly pending. The tournament registration will begin at 8:30 A.M., and questions will begin being read at 9:00 A.M. on the dot.

Edit: Matherly Hall has been confirmed as the tournament location.

Buzzer Discount: -$10 per complete, working buzzer system
Team-Provided Staff Discount:-$40 each; must be approved by TD

In Division I, our overall champions were UF A (Alex Shaw, Zachary Knecht, Nabeel Farooq), while NCF A (Katia Diamond, Leo Law, David Honsinger) took both the undergraduate title and second place overall.

In Division II, a gripping advantaged final saw UF B (Khanh Nguyen, Henry Hill, Jacob Hujsa, Anthony Delgado, Will Grossman) prevail victoriously over the second place team, UCF B (David Espinal, Hannah Sage, Donny Lisle, Dylan Higbie).

Book prizes were awarded to the following top scorers.
