The Missouri Quizbowl Alliance invites all MSHSAA-registered high school Scholar Bowl teams to participate in the eleventh annual NAQT Missouri Qualifier on March 3, 2018 on the main campus of Columbia College in Columbia. As one of MOQBA's flagship events, this tournament regularly features a diverse field of teams from throughout Missouri, recognizing the state's top teams for national tournament qualification in a fast-paced championship atmosphere.

The NAQT Missouri Qualifier will use the 2018 NAQT Division II Collegiate Sectionals question set, which is more challenging than NAQT's regular season Invitational Series questions but a step below the difficulty of NAQT's High School National Championship Tournament questions. This is a change from previous Qualifiers because NAQT is producing one fewer Invitational Series set this year.

As of December 14, this set was not assigned to any other high school tournament in Missouri. It is your responsibility to ensure that your entire team has not previously heard any part of NAQT's 2018 Collegiate Sectionals question sets and will not compete in any other tournaments using this set. Question set assignments are subject to change at any time; a list of tournaments known to be using this set is available on NAQT's website.

For more information about the tournament and a link to the registration form, see the full announcement on our website. Hope to see you in Columbia on March 3!

After round 9, Ladue A, Hallsville, Central (St. Joseph), and Hickman A advanced to the superplayoffs, while the remaining championship tier teams played round 10 placement games. Ladue A and Central were both undefeated going into their scheduled round 11 game, effectively setting up a best of three final. Ladue won the first two games 365-195 and 310-235 to earn their third NAQT Missouri Qualifier title!

For the small school title, Hallsville A finished in third place overall and was awarded the small school title outright as the only eligible team to reach the superplayoffs. This is Hallsville's sixth consecutive NAQT Missouri Qualifier small school title!

We also introduced a "very small school" title this year, awarded to the top-ranked small school eligible team in MSHSAA Classes 1 or 2 for Scholar Bowl. Louisiana was declared the Very Small School Champion with an eighth place finish overall.

See the full recap on our website.

Thanks to all of the teams, staff, and the extraordinary representatives from Columbia College for making this another successful event! We hope to see many of you return to Columbia College for the Pre-Nationals Tournament on May 12!
