The Missouri Academic Coaches Association (MACA) is pleased to announce that it will be hosting the third annual Middle School State Academic Tournament on March 17th 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 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 #26.

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.


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.

Thank you all for attending the 2018 MACA Middle School State Tournament. I hope everyone had an enjoyable time. We got to see some really great competition and it was exciting to see so many young Quiz Bowl players who were so enthusiastic about the matches.

At the end of the tournament, CIS A had a one game lead on Washington A so they moved to an Advantaged Final. Washington A won that first game (470-250) to force a second game. In the second game, CIS A won (405-320) to claim first place in the Large School division with Washington A taking second.

In the Small School division, Hallsville A won first (being the only small school team to make the championship bracket). Houston edged out Sparta (by total wins) to claim 2nd place in the Small School division.

I'd like to thank all of our volunteers on the day, you were an awesome staff to work with:
Jason Loy, Dustin Bax, Lisa McClary, Lori Lockwood, David Dennis, Jacob O'Rourke, Sally, Blakemore, Rita (St. Peter & Paul), Brett (Houston), Steven (CIS), and the Hallsville Varsity team (Drayton, Colton, Dakota, Braelynn, Emma, Selena, Samuel, Grace, and Ralph).


Once again, thanks for attending and we look forward to seeing you again next year.
