14th Hoover Invitational Tournament (Hoover, AL) 11/10/2018

Post by Joshua Rutsky » Thu Aug 09, 2018 12:56 pm

We will hold the 14th Annual Hoover Invitational this year on Saturday, November 10th, 2018, on NAQT's IS-177, with a JV division run on SCOP 9. We will likely not offer a novice bracket this year due to space issues, but teams that are interested in fielding a novice squad (any grade, but with two or fewer tournaments played) are welcome to let us know, and we will consider adding that bracket.

The cost per team this year will be $70, and each additional team will be $65. A $5 discount per FULLY WORKING BUZZER SET will be offered, with a two buzzer discount limit. Lunch will be offered on site as well.

Teams interested in competing in the event may register at http://bit.ly/14thHITRegistration. We hope to see many of you there!

Sorry about the lack of field updates. The field was in flux all the way to the night before the event.

Quick results:

Novice - Spain Park d. Woodford County for the championship.

JV - Altamont and Oak Mountain finished tied for first by agreement due to the late hour; James Clemens and Smiths Station will share third.

Varsity - Altamont and Vestavia will share the title by agreement due to the late hour; Vestavia edged Altamont by fractions of points in PPB. 3rd Place will be Woodford County A, and 4th place goes to Gadsden City, again based on PPB.

Full results will be posted soon, but stats are available at:

www.bit.ly/2018NOVICEHIT - novice
www.bit.ly/2018JVHIT - JV
www.bit.ly/2018VARSITYHIT - Varsity

Thank you to all the teams who came, and especially for their patience!
