High school QB at UTC 10/1/05: field update

As you (hopefully) already know, UTC is hosting the 8th annual Trevor's Trivia: Bob Selcer Memorial High School Quizbowl in Chattanooga on Sat., Oct. 1. We have not finalized the field, so there's still room for additional teams in both the varsity and junior varsity divisions.

We have several teams that we've heard from but that haven't confirmed. I expect a field of around 20 teams, but as of the moment only the 13 teams below have confirmed. Schools are from Tennessee and teams are in the varsity division unless otherwise noted.

Bob Jones (AL) 2 teams (1 in JV)
Brindlee Mtn. (AL) 3 teams (2 in JV)
Covenant Christian (AL) 2 teams (1 in JV)
Dalton (GA) 1 team
Indian Springs (AL) 1 team
McMinn Co. 1 team
Ooltewah 1 team
Ringgold (GA) 1 team (JV), possibly 2
Sand Rock (AL) 1 team

Let me know if there are any errors or omissions, and we hope to see you on Oct. 1. If you need me to send full details and registration form, please let me know. I can be reached at steinhic [at] bellsouth [dot] netThanks.

This field still up-to-date? If so, what type of schedule are we looking at?

Here's a quick glance at the results from the UTC Tournament yesterday to tide us over until official stats are posted:

Varsity:

1st - Covenant Christian Academy (AL)
2nd - Brindlee Mountain High School (AL)
3rd - Indian Springs (AL)
4th - Bob Jones (AL)

Junior Varsity:

1st - Brindlee Mountain C (aka Brindlee Mountain Middle School A)
2nd - Brindlee Mountain High School B


In varsity, there was a field of 14 teams. Five of them were from Alabama, and 4 of those 5 were the top 4. Go, Alabama!!!


As far as the tournament went, it couldn't have been better. The questions were absolutely top-notch. It is a shame that we in Alabama have to travel out-of-state to get questions of this quality. Also, Charlie and Co. were on top of things more than I have ever seen. There were absolutely no delays between matches at all. Sometimes the moderator would be in the room with the next round's questions by the time we were. As always, the UTC tournaments look to be the most fun of year.

UT-Chattanooga hosted its eighth annual fall high school academic tournament, Trevor's Trivia: Bob Selcer Memorial High School Quizbowl, on Sat., Oct. 1. Congratulations to Covenant Christian Academy and Brindlee Mtn. B, winners of the varsity and junior varsity divisions (respectively.) Full results follow, but first...

GRATITUDE: Special thanks to James Washick of North Greenville College and Sudheer Potru et al. of Illinois for exchanging questions with us. Thanks go to our house officials: Stephen Webb, Shae Reynolds, and Nick Bendler of Georgia Tech; Stephen Taylor, Brett Norris, Travis Lightsey, and Lucas Crawford of Macon State; Chuck Pearson of Shorter College; and UTC's own John Kilby, Eric Fox, Jacob Vannucci, Jimmy Beilstein, Vince Betro, Ruth Jackson, Zach Cross, and Yolanda Fernandez. [Apologies if I left anyone out.] Thanks also to the high school coaches who read or at least offered to read when we needed. And as always, thanks to John Miles and the folks at Provino's for providing incentive for our guest readers to come to town for the occasion.

RESULTS

We had a total of 21 teams, conveniently distributed with 14 in Division I and 7 in Division II. Division I was split into two brackets, which each played a round robin of 7 rounds. (Thanks go to Cocke Co. and Morristown West for agreeing to field second teams at the last minute, replacing two late cancellations and keeping the schedule simple.) This was followed by three rounds of modified Swiss pairings, with the top three teams from each bracket playing in a championship division.

DIVISION I: Standings for Division I after the round robin and before the Swiss pairings were:

Team Name Division Win Loss Points Opp Pts Diff/GM

Sand Rock (AL) I B 2 - 7 1255 2115 -95.56
Cocke Co. B I B 0 - 9 380 2490 -234.44



It's worthy of mention that the 2nd place team, Brindlee Mtn. A, chose to compete in Division I even though all its players were eligible for JV.

By virtue of a head-to-head sweep over the other two upper division teams with the same record, Bob Jones A was awarded 4th place.

DIVISION II

Results after the round robin were:


Team Name Division Win Loss Points Opp Pts Diff/GM
Brindlee Mtn. (AL) C II 5 - 1 1370 490 146.67

Brindlee Mtn. D II 1 - 5 465 935 -78.33
Morristown W. B II 0 - 6 300 980 -113.33


The top four teams then squared off in a playoff, with Brindlee Mtn. C enjoying a one-game advantage. It took a shootout, but Brindlee Mtn. C held on to defeat Brindlee Mtn. B. Bob Jones B took 3rd, and Ringgold B was 4th.
