Congratulations to St. Mark's School of Texas, who went 13-0 to win the Charter and Private division of the 2017 SSNCT!

In the Traditional Public division, our top two teams will both be from Kentucky: Danville and Glasgow A will now be starting an advantaged final.

St. Mark's had a lot of fun this weekend and really appreciate how well NAQT ran the tournament. Besides a few minor glitches, the questions were fresh and well-written, and all the readers were quite good. We're excited about how the win will increase awareness of Quizbowl around our school. Still, we were disappointed that we were excluded from the NAQT homepage slideshow of champions even though the other two winners, Glasgow and Camp Hill, were included.

The photographer only just sent me your trophy photo and I am in the process of putting it up now. I'll need to know the names of the players from left to right, so I'll e-mail you shortly.
