I would like to thank everyone for coming to the 2017 NAQT Midwest Sectional Championship tournament at WUSTL today! Northwestern won the Division 1 title with a record of 10-1 while the University of Illinois-Urbana Champaign B claimed the Division 2 title over Chicago D with a record of 11-1! Stats are found above in the link. I'd like to thank Jonah Greenthal for coming from Chicagoland to help with running the statistics end of the event as well as my staff: Seth Ebner Jacob Bryce O'Rourke Patrick Butenhoff Velimir Petrovic Andy Walz Ross Sparrow Auric Brockfeld Collin Nadarajah Jonathan Mishory and Erik Tomasic! I'd also like to thank those on the d2 teams that graciously offered to scorekeep on bye as that helped a staff depleted in recent days stay on track. I had a great time with all of you!

Congrats and I will see you all down the line!

Just wanted to say: This was likely my last collegiate quizbowl tournament, since I'll hopefully be graduating my masters program this spring and there aren't any other events on my horizon. I had an amazing time thanks to NAQT, to Sean, to the staff, and to all the other teams who came to compete!
