Two Missouri teams ranked in new poll

Post by socalcaptain » Thu Jan 08, 2015 6:37 pm

Congratulations to Hallsville and Richland, who were both ranked among the top 10 small schools in the first iteration of the new hsquizbowl high school poll! No teams from Missouri were ranked in the top 25 overall poll.

The full poll results can be found here: http://www.hsquizbowl.org/jan15poll.htm

(Full disclosure: I am on the panel that votes in these polls. And no, I won't reveal my specific ballot choices.)

When two ballots can leave off Northmont who have beaten almost every school on that list, you know something is MESSED UP.

Also the fact that a ballot left off Hallsville, the defending small school champions who lost no one from their championship team, strikes me as....very odd.

EDIT: It was only one ballot. Whoops.

Yes, there were some oddities. Not from me, that I can say.
