We had the best overall record (12-1 versus a pair of 11-2 teams) and we had the best point differential in the circle of death (NM +60, Centennial -30, GD -30). The difference was we didn't sc...

Re: 2015 NHBB/USGO Discussion Thread

My biggest complaint of the entire weekend was the 8 by 4 playoff system. I know it was designed as an alternative to the single elimination playoff, but it essentially served as much to be one, as it eliminated IMSA (2 seed), DCC (3 seed) and Northmont (4 seed) with one loss. While IMSA and DCC we...

Re: HERMES at Richard Montgomery (MD) (Main-site) - 3.28.201

I would like to say first that we greatly enjoyed the set and the tournament. However, I believe there is an error in the posted stats for our first round game with Wilmington Charter A. I have Centennial with one less 10 point toss-up and 26 of 30 on bonuses. Charter had an additional 10 point toss...

Re: What Happens to DC-Area Quizbowl Next Year?

To correct my previous post and give proper credit, we placed second to Richard Montgomery in the National History Bowl Washington, DC Regional. However, we did take both 1st and 2nd place in two National History Bee Regionals. (Weijia and Ryan in different orders)

Re: What Happens to DC-Area Quizbowl Next Year?

I would add that there was a bit of a mid-yesr lull in local NAQT tournaments. In the mean time we won two National History Bowl Regionals (and qualified 6 teams for nationals) and performed decently in the ACF Regional College Competition at UVA without our full team. In keeping with our traditions...

Re: Field Set for 2014 National History Bowl / Updated Seeds

Out of curiosity, did anyone ever post the playoff results from last year's playoffs? If not, its ok, since everyone is probably be preparing for this year's Nationals now. Another thing is that does anyone know where to find the results from last year, now that the new brackets are on the website?...

Re: MD Quizbowl Championship -- Centennial Regional (2/22/14

In the previously results, Centennial and RM should each have one more win.
