I'm just curious if there's a thread/list of side events that are being run this year, other than Acronym. Thanks.

I want to thank the people who did the heavy lifting on this year's HSNCT set: Jason Thompson, Billy Busse, Rob Carson, Auroni Gupta, and Bernadette Spencer were the set editing crew; and Danny Vopava was the top writer, chipping in 169 questions. If you see these folks at HSNCT, please thank them in person! If you like the set, let them know. (If you have complaints or corrections, please email [email protected])

Was this the first time that non-magnet public schools won HSNCT in back-to-back years?
EDIT: This post had accidentally submitted before I congratulated Beavercreek on their win. That final game was so awesome. Great job, everyone.
