MOQBA welcomes new members for 2009-10

Post by DeckardCain » Sun Jun 07, 2009 2:13 pm

The Missouri Quizbowl Alliance is pleased to welcome four new members for the 2009-10 season.

Spencer Fish graduated from Liberty High School in 2009 and will be attending Washington University in St. Louis.

Charles Hang was born in Shanghai, China, and moved to St. Charles, Missouri outside of St. Louis at the age of five. He played Quiz Bowl for four years from 2005-2009 at Francis Howell Central High School, where he worked to improve and expand the team as Co-Captain his junior year and Captain his senior year. Charles also holds over a dozen scoring awards, including the top scorer award at the 2009 NAQT Missouri Qualifier. Charles will begin attending the Missouri University of Science & Technology in the fall of 2009 and is currently a writer for America's premier question writing corporation, National Academic Quiz Tournaments, LLC (NAQT).

Jason Loy began playing quiz bowl at Cutter Morning Star High School in Hot Springs, Arkansas, leading the team to three state class AA state championships as well as competing at NAQT HSNCT three times (2002 - 2004). He then played at Harding University for four years, qualifying for four national tournaments as well as serving as tournament director for seven high school tournaments. As well as writing questions to several collegiate tournaments, he also contributed to Florida State's 2006 fall high school tournament and helped edit the 2007 edition of ACF Fall. He currently attends graduate school at Missouri State University and started a quiz bowl team there in the fall of 2008.

Sean Phillips was born on March 24, 1982. He grew up in Boonville, Missouri, and was part of two state championship teams in 1998 and 2000, winning the MSHSAA 3A title in 2000. That year he also was the top player in the MRVC Conference, the district, and set what at that time was a record in 3A individual performance at state. Upon matriculating to Washington University in St. Louis, where while still competing in academic competitions, he began participating in trash events placing in the top 10 individually at TRASHionals in 2001. He wrote his first (and to date) only tournament in 2003, the St. Louis' Unbelieveable Trash Tournament and wrote trash for PACE NSC in 2003 and 2004. He has co-edited and helped run every WUHSAC since 2002 and been privileged to have have been part of four national championships hosted by WUSTL where he was the team's vice-president from 2002-2004. He is a member of the Missouri Bar having graduated from Saint Louis University School of Law in 2007.

We believe that our expanded membership will better help us provide high-quality academic competition to all Missouri teams. We thank you for your continued support of MOQBA and look forward to seeing everyone next season.
