Re: 2019-20 Groger Ranks Postseason Poll

Richard Montgomery A is a very, very good NAQT team and an excellent mACF team. Previously, they've had some neg issues and bonus problems, but it seems like they've cleaned that up. They are seriously underranked and are a top 10 caliber team. Langley is also very good. William Orr is the best lit...

Re: DC Metro End-of-Season Individual Poll

As Abhinav has already touched upon the top ten overall players, I'd like to focus on underclassmen and players from TJ. For freshmen, Cavan Gabaldon O'Neill from BASIS put an impressive fifty powers over eleven games on IS-190. He's a strong generalist who will be getting better throughout the year...

DC Metro End-of-Season Individual Poll

Greetings everyone. As you all know, the 2019-2020 Quizbowl season was sadly cut short by COVID-19. Therefore, due to popular demand (I asked in the DMV Discord), I have decided to announce a 2019-2020 DMV Player Poll. The poll will work very similar to the one Groger Ranks did last year, (https://h...

Not sure about that but thanks?.....

Re: DC Metro Area Discussion - 2019-2020

As the season reaches 2/3 of the way through, a lot has changed in the DC area. The class of 2023 is pretty promising and I'd like to highlight them as well as shill for a couple of my teammates. Similar to Gus' post, I'll be focusing on underclassmen (2022 and 2023). 2023: Elliott Lee (TJ): As the ...

Re: Getting "Real" Literature Knowledge

You seem to be in the same scenario as me. Honestly, memorizing clues and knowing as much as you can about books will not guarantee that you power the question, sometimes even if you've read the book. Truth be told is recognizing first-line clues isn't fully you're fault, you just aren't thinking a...

Re: Getting "Real" Literature Knowledge

Hi Justin, Welcome to the forums! It's always great to see high schoolers get excited about quizbowl. I think what you're asking is a natural question for someone entering the community and starting to take the game seriously. I think it also expresses a couple misconceptions I've noticed elsewhere...

Getting "Real" Literature Knowledge

Hello everyone! I'm a rising sophomore at TJHSST. I recently joined the school's quizbowl club, and have been doing pretty well due to my summer grind. During the summer, I was able to gain a lot of literature knowledge from a combination of reading packets and carding literature along with the occa...
