HSAPQ will be hosting their annual NASAT
at Ohio State on 6/14-6/15. New York has historically sent a team of 6 each year, determined by tryout. Last year
, the NY team consisted of Irit Huq-Kuruvilla (Ithaca), Wilton Rao (Hunter), Max Servetas (North Babylon), Alec Vulfson (Irvington), Cyrus Zhou (GNS), and myself (Hunter).
Tryouts will be held online via
Skype, so we can gather far-flung players in the state. Tryouts will be held in two parts: a mandatory session on Sun 5/18, and an option between Thurs 5/8 and Thurs 5/15 sessions. Players must attend both parts to be considered. We plan on using DRAGOON
, a regular-difficulty college set, and Wilton Rao and Auroni Gupta have generously offered to moderate. Last year, we tracked stats by category on Google Docs, and looked at a combination of tossup and bonus performance to determine our final roster of 6 people.
Last year, we traveled to NASAT by coordinating van transportation with the NJ team.
If you're interested or know anyone interested in trying out for the NY team, post below or PM me, and I can add you to the email thread.
