2015 Pre-Nationals Quiz Bowl Rankings – 5/18/2015 (UPDATED!x3)

Here are the updated quiz bowl rankings. I’ve gone through 4824 complete stat lines, plus 200 stat lines of powers per game.

I’m working on the All-World Teams and hope to have them announced in the next week or so.

UPDATED: Due to irregularities with the statistics kept at the main BISB set, I had to drop those stats from consideration. This has results in some significant movement in the rankings, which are now reflected below.

UPDATED #2: First of all, there were two entries for Livingston B; one of these were meant to be Livingston C, but there was an issue with an overlap of stats between the two teams. This resulted in Livingston B moving up and C moving down the rankings.

There was a further issue with a late update being applied to Richard Montgomery A’s stats at Blair Spring. This increased RM’s aPPB from there to the point that they should have earned the #1 spot in the rankings. I apologize for the confusion; the rankings have been updated below to reflect this.

UPDATED #3: After the last update, I received multiple emails containing additional stats I missed, including one from Ohio back in November. I’ve applied all of this information to these rankings, and we have settled on a final set of them. No more corrections will be accepted from this point forward for the purpose of updating the placement of teams.

Congratulations to our final #1 team, Detroit Catholic Central A!

  1. Thanks for all the hard work in this newest set of stats.

    As I’ve commented earlier (in March??) ‘falling out’ is just part of the game
    and now in May, ‘falling in’ is just as much a part of the progress of any school
    or team.

    We look forward to seeing y’all in Chicago at NAQT nationals — it ought to be
    a delightful tournament.

    PS: Middle School NAQT nationals @ DFW Airport hotel was great fun, too!

  2. Thanks again for all the work that you’ve put into this set of rankings.

    Saint Joseph (IN) attended ATROPHY at NIU this April and played on the BHSAT set, and put up an appb of about 21.71 if I’ve calculated correctly. However, in our listing of top appbs behind our ranking, it states that our second highest appb is 20.69.

    I was wondering if our ppb from this tournament was included in the stat lines.

    Thanks,

    Nolan Liu

  3. The 2015 NAQT tournament was certainly one that Cistercian Prep (Irving, TX) enjoyed. Although we didn’t make much of a dent in the pre-tournament rankings, our “A” team did a nice job at NAQT nationals and finished somewhere in the 50’s and our “B” also had nice run of things as well.

    To continue my train of thought from late last month: it’s nice to see both of our teams ‘falling into’ the rankings. Certainly, part of the issue concerned the fewer number of tournaments we attended in 2014-15. Having just finished from a sabbatical year in June 2014, getting things back in the swing of things, even with my very able colleague, was challenging and takes awhile.

    I look forward to 2015-2016 being even stronger for Cistercian Prep — and the Lone Star Republic of Texas.

  4. Do you have a pdf of the complete stat lines from last season? And if you so would you be able to email it to me at saimun.shahee(at)gmail.com
