Re: On HS Teams Without Coaches

I guess I'll just clarify Vincent's post: Basil's team does have an adult coach, but the only time I really saw her was at the tournament that Acton-Boxborough hosted. Emily is right: at most tournaments, the team was either accompanied by Basil's parents, or were unaccompanied (I'm not sure how com...

Re: 2019-20 Groger Ranks Player Poll

I guess I'll join in on the New England circuit shilling: Karsten is very good, but everyone knew that already Corollary: Vincent Fan's performances playing in Karsten's shadow are impressive and you should consider putting him on your ballot Also look at Basil Sousonis's HFT stats, they should spea...

Re: Where are you going to college next year? (2020)

I'm going to Williams College, and definitely hoping to play at least casually.

Re: New England Date Claims 19-20

Yale would like to tentatively claim Saturday, February 29 for the main site of BHSAT. We understand that there is a slight conflict with AMSA's middle school tournament but believe the fields are effectively distinct. Furthermore, the collegiate quiz bowl calendar necessitates this date from our p...

Re: New England Date Claims 19-20

We've decided to change the date for LVMIT to March 7, since our original date falls on our school vacation week.

Lexington would like to claim Feb. 15 for LVMIT (mirroring LOGIC), and April 11 for ATHENA (a modified IS set, just like ATHENA I in 2016). Thanks!

Not that this affects the Scottie mirror, but the date for BHSAT was changed to the 16th (http://hsquizbowl.org/forums/viewtopic. ... 80#p350699) (Vincent please edit the post thanks)

Re: 2019 BLISS I Open for Mirrors

Given what we’ve seen from BLS’s tournament this past weekend, and the fact that this sets first mirror is coming up very fast, is it possible to ask about how much progress has been made on writing/editing so far, or what assurances of quality we can expect?

Re: Boston Latin Tournament (BLT) I (Scobol Solo/SCOP 9 Mirror) 10/27/18

Not to detract from the criticisms of the tournament in this thread, but is there any chance that we could have stats for the solo tournament too? Thanks

While overall I thought this tournament was unique and an interesting concept, and I enjoyed the experience, I thought that there were a few things that could have been improved on the logistical side of things: First of all, the solo tournament was generally messily organized: for one, it lasted fa...

Re: SPIT I @ BLS (Boston, MA) GSAC XXV mirror 3/24/18

Hi Everyone, The byes in the morning were required to have the 4 by 5 prelims with the new division separate. Any other numbering would have made it very difficult to have a new division. We were considering running scrimmages during byes because we were overstaffed but decided against it for simpl...
