Great Valley (PA) Middle School Tournament (12/12)

December 12, 2015 @ Great Valley High School (Malvern, PA)

Great Valley High School is pleased to announce the second Great Valley NAQT Middle School Quiz Bowl Tournament to be hosted on December 12, 2015 at Great Valley High School. This is a great opportunity to get your middle school students an opportunity to compete in general knowledge quiz bowl and introduce them to the NAQT question format. We hope to guarantee 8 to 10 matches in one day, depending on field size! We will be offering food on-site for lunch or teams may explore the option of going to nearby restaurants if they choose. Please contact Bernard McCauley at bmccauley@gvsd.org for more information regarding the tournament.

Tournament Facts:
Registration Fee: $60 for first team, $50 for subsequent teams
New to Quiz Bowl: $40 for each team (Trying to get new teams from PA in particular)
Registration Discounts: -$5 for buzzer system, -$5 for experienced moderators
Minimum Fee (per team—not school): $40
Question Set: Middle School Packet #15
We may offer a novice division if we can get enough teams interested in the split and enough buzzers/moderators. (Edit: Right now this looks unlikely, but we will discuss it more as tournament gets closer)

We will be capping the field at 18 teams due to limits on buzzers and moderators at this time. We will expand if we get enough staffing! (Edit: we probably will have enough staffing for 24 teams, but are still awaiting full confirmation)

Current Field (Teams/Buzzers/Moderators):
Great Valley MS (4/1/0)
Renaissance Academy (3/1/0)
Peirce-West Chester SD (5/0/0)
Phoenixville (3/0/0)
Tome (3/2/0)
Patton-Unionville SD (3/0/0)
Alfred G Waters (1/1/0)
Independence (2/3/0)

Total Teams: 24

Congratulations to Independence A for winning this year's event. Lots of close games, lots of tiebreakers in groups (including a circle of death in a playoff pool!)

Also to note, great performances by several local teams, including a 3rd place finish by Peirce in their first ever NAQT event and a 2nd place finish by Patton A in their second event.

Final standings:

Big thanks to Missy Doll of Manheim Township, Bill Tressler, and Ben Herman for giving their time up to help out.
