This is the final set of rankings for the season. Results from NSC and HSNCT have been incorporated like regular season tournaments. The adjustments for those are +4.53 for HSNCT and +4.91 for NSC. This moves 22 teams up at least 10 spots in the rankings, with 3 teams entering. The biggest jump by one team was 57 teams.
I wanted to send along a quick note. One of my fellow members of PACE, Bernadette Spencer, was struck by a car while bicycling earlier this week. She’s currently in the ICU. From the sound of things, her injuries could have ended up a lot worse than they currently are, but she’s suffered quite a few injuries.
Her boyfriend, Rob Carson, has put together a Go Fund Me to help with their bills while she recovers. You can find the page at https://www.gofundme.com/bernadettespencer
Chances are, if you’ve been involved in quiz bowl in the past five plus years, you or your child has attended an event that either Rob or Bernadette have put a lot of work into. I know that PACE would not be where it is today if it wasn’t for their hard work. If you’re able to make a donation to them in this difficult time, please consider doing so.
Thank you so much for reading this,
