Because there will not (in all likelihood) be a Mississippi NAQT State Tournament, we have been cleared to host Mississippi teams at this event. Interested Mississippi teams should contact me or Cara Zajac using the contact information listed above.

Jesuit A went undefeated and won this tournament, with Jesuit B finishing second and Lusher finishing third. There were also strong showings from Itawamba, Lafayette, and Ben Franklin. I'm not sure when Tulane will have stats, but as soon as they do they'll be posted here.

I didn't get to hear any of questions after round 3 because I had to leave early. Is there anyway to find the history and Literature questions from the next few rounds. I have heard they had a fair share of them which is my strongest subjects. If this is possible it would be appreciated. Thanks Benji.

We try to make sure that our subject distribution is as even as possible across the length of the tournament.

Your team should have received a paper copy of IS #136 at the tournament itself, so your first step should be to check with your coach and teammates to take a look at the later rounds.
