New High School Quiz Bowl Rankings – 11/19

I was finally able to calculate new adjustments for a couple of sets this year – specifically, Maryland Spring, ACF Fall and the current HSAPQ set.

Teams whose ranking statistically depended on ACF Fall for their rankings mostly stayed the same – the changes were fairly minor.
Teams whose ranking depended on Maryland Spring tended to move up the rankings, because as of now the Maryland Spring set grades out as about the same difficulty as ACF Fall.
Teams whose ranking depended on the HSAPQ set tended to move down the rankings, as so far that set grades out as noticeably easier than last year’s HSAPQ efforts.

Additionally, some teams from Ohio that were originally credited as having played FKT had that changed to a NAQT A set to reflect reality. This resulted in teams’ adjusted aPPBs dropping, since A sets grade out as much easier than FKT. This caused some teams, like Tippecanoe, to fall out of the rankings.

We’re still ranking 100 teams. I don’t know if this is going to expand this calendar year, but I expect to be at 200 ranked high school teams by March, if not earlier.

In addition to the Singapore American School, which put on another strong performance, Shanghai American School of Puxi debuts in the rankings at 81. Colonel By remains in the top 10. I don’t know if I’ve pointed this out before, but I’m pretty sure this is the first time that a team outside the U.S. has been in the top 10.

Also, the current top 11 represents 11 different states/provinces, which is pretty neat. I don’t know if this is the first time we’ve had two teams in the top 100 from Oklahoma, but I don’t think that’s happened much before.

Teams that I’m sure are making their top 100 debuts are Hingham and West-Windsor Plainsboro South (what a name!)

Finally, this looks like it will almost certainly be the first year the top team in New York will not be Hunter College High School. Hunter remains solid, but Bethlehem Central is off to a great start, with Great Neck South and Ithaca not too far behind.

Skipping the “big jumps, entering, falling out” segment due to the large amount of moves caused by new aPPB adjustments.
