NAQT

Post by David Riley »

Just taking a poll: do any states regularly use NAQT questions for their state tournament series?

We don't have a "state tournament series," but for our "state championship tournament" Maryland and the District of Columbia use NAQT.

There's been a big split in Texas over this. TQBA's State Championship (30 or so teams) uses NAQT. The smaller and IMHO really bad tournament at SHSU uses Chip questions.

There are really two official "states" in Virginia: VHSL and NAQT, though the former only allows 8(?) teams that have qualified at districts/regionals.

Like in Virginia, Georgia (and many other states) have two state championship tournaments -- the state organization's tournament (in Ga., the very well-run GATA tournament, which used to use NAQT questions, I think), and the NAQT state tournament, which is run on a specific set of questions and is something that I think the national organization has tried to encourage in the last year or two.

Ohio has the dreaded Ohio Academic Competition Format, which often turns into a buzzer race and IMHO, doesn't do anything to show who truly is the #1 team in the state.

Just last year, Greg Bossick held our first NAQT State Tournament and I'm running it this year, so technically Ohio now has 2 state tournaments.

If it was up to my assistant coach, we would come up with some intermediate format to in his words "Unify the titles", the same as he would like to do with all the national champions each year.

Eight per school size class, so twenty-four overall. NAQT's states is pretty much just like any other NAQT invitational tournament, except that it is restricted to Virginia schools. Sean Pickrell is basically the mastermind behind VHSL states, and the questions that he and his recruits write are pretty good.

That's because it's the NAQT Maryland State Championships.

DC (to my knowledge) and Maryland have no state championship organization.

Like so many others, Alabama has both a state-run (ASCA) state tournament, limited to 16 teams that have qualified through a series of district and regional tournaments.

We also have an NAQT State Championship Tournament.

In Illinois there is the IHSA state championship (regional-sectional-state), run by the group that oversees athletic competition, and a separate state series run by the Masonic Society (regional-state).

There is only ONE state tournament in Georgia, the one sponsored by GATA, Georgia's coaches. NAQT did a very small event in April that bills itself as a GA NAQT Qualifier.

For the second year ever the University of Florida will be hosting the Florida NAQT State Championship. To my knowledge, it's the only high school NAQT tournament in the state this year. The older and "other" state championship is a county-team competition in three divisions in the Panasonic (ew) format.

hammond high hosting MD state NAQT

Post by shylar »

As is posted elsewhere, Hammond High in Central Maryland (Columbia) will be hosting the state NAQT, March 25. Teams from Maryland and D.C. will be eligible for the competition. Due to the format, there will be more games for individual teams.

We'll work on pricing later in the winter. We are open to suggestions for pricing combinations (first team, second team, buzzer discounts, etc.)
