Field Update:

Palisades Charter 1
La Jolla 2-3
RB 1-2
Hart 1
Santa Monica 2
North Hollywood 2

I know Arcadia expressed interest, but I haven't heard back from them. Also, somebody pointed out to me that the main post does not indicate that this is an NAQT Qualifier. I would like to assure everyone that it is in fact a qualifier for HSNCT.

Arcadia is, in fact going to be there. We will have four teams, one staffer, and two buzzers. Sorry that someone had not confirmed as of yet, I thought our captains had confirmed with you. Christopher Schultz - Quiz Bowl Advisor, Arcadia High School

I find it faintly amusing that the first request for stats came before the tournament even began.

The post was originally about a field update, but it was edited after the tournament.
