2023 MOQBA Fall Championship - December 9 at Columbia College

Post by Jeffrey Hill »

The Missouri Quizbowl Alliance is pleased to announce that we will host the MOQBA Fall Championship on Saturday, December 9, 2023 at Columbia College in Columbia. As MOQBA's flagship fall tournament, we look forward to hosting another highly competitive and geographically diverse field and encourage high school teams from every area of the state to attend.

The MOQBA Fall Championship will use the 2023 Scottie question set. While we expect to be the only tournament in Missouri using this set, it is your responsibility to ensure that your team has not previously heard this question set and will not compete in any other tournaments using this set.

For more details and a link to the registration form, please see the full announcement on our website.

I guess I forgot to post the recap here.

A tournament record 41 teams from 33 schools attended the eighth MOQBA Fall Championship at Columbia College on December 9, 2023.

After round 8, Mexico A, Parkway West, Ladue A, and College Heights Christian were undefeated in their playoff pools, advancing to the top 4 championship pool. Mexico A and Parkway West were the only remaining undefeated teams entering their scheduled round 11 match, effectively beginning a best of three final. Mexico won the first two games 335-175 and 380-120 to win the 2023 MOQBA Fall Championship title! In round 11, College Heights Christian defeated Ladue A 325-215 in what was effectively the third place game. Hallsville A was the small school champion, finishing ninth overall.

See the full recap on our website.

Thanks to everyone who attended and to Columbia College for another successful tournament!
