The initial field has filled, so we have started a waitlist for this tournament. Please register if you want to attend, since it's likely you'll still get to play (whether through someone dropping or us expanding the field).

The Parkway School superintendent just announced earlier today that January school-sponsored activities will have to be virtual or cancelled, so we'll be moving this tournament online, on the same date. We'll likely be using Google Meet for this tournament.

Here's the schedule for tomorrow.

The rooms have the links to the online game rooms. After round 5, I will update the playoff schedule (which is at the bottom) so that everyone knows where to play for rounds 6-8.

Thank you all very much for attending the 2022 Patriot Academic Tournament. This tournament ran better than I ever dared to dream it would with us having to pivot to being online 3 weeks ago, and the willingness of you and your teams to roll with the punches was a great help with that.
Complete statistics from throughout the day can be found here. 

Parkway West A defeated Okemos (MI) to win the title in the final, 470-175. Clayton A defeated St. Joseph Central A 440-230 to finish in third place. 

Also want to give a big thanks to our staffers: Jeffrey Hill, Kyle Hill, Michael Menkhus, Julie Burchett, Alex Dzurick and Jacob Billingsley of the Missouri Quizbowl Alliance; Mike Sorice; Sharon Lorinskas; Lori Hattendorf and Neel Kotra, formerly of WUSTL; Jared Lockwood, formerly of Princeton and Hallsville HS; Jason Keller; Coaches Jason Loy of Sullivan; David Dennis of Washington; Andrew Darr and Andrew Reynolds of Centralia; Mary Aitken of Lutheran South; Holly Wooldridge, Holly Bennett, Rhonda Wertz and Rachel Walker of Westran; Drake Moss of Sullivan; and Alex Noll, Aidan Chastain, Allen Nieman, Mounica Valluru, Maanvi Aggarwal, Liza Musgrave, Yukta Gadireddy, Riley Darrough, Ansel Panicker, Walee Baig, Chloe Wasilewshi, Olivia Hartner, Nicky Jumps and Julian Foat of the Parkway South team.

Finally, I also want to give a huge thanks to Parkway South coaches Allison McDonald and Scott Degitz-Fries, who were a big help behind the scenes with getting the kids trained as scorekeepers, assigning them and helping to let people into rooms and helping to respond to situations that happened to keep things running smoothly.

Thanks you all, and I hope to see you at this tournament next year (hopefully, in person)!
