2016 MACA Middle School State Academic Tournament (3/19/16)

Post by Hallsville Coach » Tue Jan 12, 2016 10:55 am

The Missouri Academic Coaches Association (MACA) is pleased to announce that it will be hosting the first ever Middle School State Academic Tournament on March 19th at Hallsville High School. This tournament is open to teams of 7th and 8th grade students.

Games will consist of 20 tossups worth ten points each, followed by three-part rebounding bonuses worth up to thirty points. Tossups will include powers (extra points for answering a tossup early). The question set for the tournament will be NAQT MS #18.


We anticipate using two full round robins in the morning and afternoon with an advantaged final to decide the champion. We will be limiting each school to two teams (maximum of 6 players per team) and placing any subsequent teams from that school on the waitlist. This will help to ensure that all schools interested in competing have a chance to enter a team. If we do not reach our field cap, then teams from the waitlist will be added to the field in the order that their request was received.

Fees:

base fee (first team from each school): $75 (teams will receive a $15 discount if they provide a scorekeeper or moderator)
second or subsequent teams: $55
buzzer discount (must work for eight players; limit two per school): -$5
Minimum entry fee: $20

To register, please e-mail me at sallen@hallsville.org to reserve your spot. We look forward to seeing you in March.



Tournament Directors,
Scott Allen and Jason Loy

Congratulations to all of the teams that competed in the inaugural MACA Middle School State tournament. After a fun day of Quiz Bowl, Washington A was our overall champion followed by CIS A in second place. Rounding out the top 4 were Hallsville and Washington B. Hallsville was our Small School champion with Tuscumbia in 2nd place in Small Schools.
Thank you to all of the coaches, asst. coaches, Varsity players, parents and students that volunteered to help staff this event.
