Post 2015 PACE NSC-June 6-7 in Washington, D.C.
PACE's National Scholastics Championship will be at the Hyatt Regency in Reston, VA (which is part of the D.C. area).

The Missouri schools attending are:
Washington A
Washington B
Hannibal
North Kansas City

For predictions:
-Hannibal finishes the highest of the Missouri schools (I'd say in the top 40, but I wouldn't be surprised for them to make a run into the top 30)
-I haven't seen NKC play a lot this year, but they've put up some good results at the tournaments they've gone to. I'd say somewhere in the 51-60 range (with the caveat that I'm likely wrong).
-Washington A should challenge for top 3 in the JV division.

Also, there's a Coaches' Forum going on the Friday night of PACE, along with a science side event written by Will Overman of Maggie Walker going on on Saturday night.

Hope everyone enjoys the tournament! I know I'm looking forward to going to PACE for the first time since 2012.

There isn't a liveblog, but stuff should go up on twitter with the hashtag #pacensc throughout the weekend.

Hannibal went 3-4 - wins over Providence (Charlotte, NC), Simon Kenton (Independence, KY), and Washington B; losses to Detroit Catholic Central C (Novi, MI), Western Albemarle (Crozet, VA), Wilmington Charter (DE), Rancho Bernardo (San Diego, CA). This puts them in Tier III, playing for 49th-72nd of 96 teams.

Washington A, Washington B, and North Kansas City all went 0-7, and will be playing in Tier IV, playing for 73rd-96th.

Parth was tied for 23rd of 417 individuals at 77.14 PPG.

This will be the first national tournament since 2011 (NSC and NASAT) in which a Missouri team will not finish in the top half of the field.

Despite placing pretty low (and being unhappy with my own performance) I felt this national was a very positive experience, and overall it was executed great. I think it would be cool to see more Missouri teams attend in the future.

I know they haven't posted complete stats yet but I was curious as to what the individual rankings were.

They are based on the preliminary rounds. There will definitely be a combined file for everything coming soon, but I hope Jon is also planning to merge the four stat files from each stage into one report per stage. (I suppose I could always do that if he doesn't)
