I don't have much to say, but I'm going to create this thread if any Georgia quiz bowlers want to talk here.

I just wanted to shout out the outstanding performance from Georgia teams at HSNCT.

Last year we had 23 teams at HSNCT and only 7 qualified for playoffs. This year we had 26 teams at HSNCT and 15 qualified for playoffs.

Congrats to Johns Creek A & B, Chattahoochee, Lambert, Northview A & B, Chamblee, Midtown, Westminster, Paideia, Alliance Academy, Milton, and Eastside!
