On Saturday, March 29, Tulane University hosted the second annual Louisiana NAQT State championship. The tournament saw Jesuit A go undefeated en route to a second consecutive Louisiana NAQT State title, with Jesuit B finishing second and Lusher finishing third. Jesuit A was led by overall top scorer Kevin Yokum (90 ppg), and also saw strong performances from Ian Calamari, Stanley Dai, Sam Zelden, and Brett Lorio. Congratulations, Coach Ron Rossi and Jesuit A!
Other top scorers at the tournament were Lusher’s Dianna Kissokson (65 ppg) and Ben Franklin’s Travis Haycraft (60.83 ppg).
Itawamba Agricultural, a school from Fulton, Mississippi, attended this tournament and posted an 8-3 record, including a last-question loss to Jesuit B. Louisiana Quiz Bowl hopes to see more of Itawamba and other Mississippi schools at future tournaments!
