SCHOLARS BOWL – ANNOUNCEMENTS
December 15, 2022

WINTER MORATORIUM = DECEMBER 24-28 No practices or competitions may take place during the KSHSAA Winter Moratorium. Enjoy the break!

Remember to track how many competitions each of your students is participating in throughout the season. RULE 51-2-3: No student may participate in more than nine (9) Scholars Bowl competitions per year, exclusive of regional and state. This number is eight (8) if your school does not host a league or invitational tournament.

REGIONAL COMPETITIONS = THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 2
Click HERE for the regional assignments. There will be 331 schools competing (6A = 26, 5A = 34, 4A = 36, 3A = 64, 2A = 64, 1A DIV I = 54, & 1A DIV II = 53). Regional Entry Forms (SB-1) are due to the Tournament Manager by January 27. Be prepared to provide a worker if the host school requests it.

Regional Tournaments (All Classes) – Round-Robin Format of Competition (Page 25 of the KSHSAA Scholars Bowl Manual)
Round-robin competition will take place in each pool of schools with each school meeting every other school in that pool. In regional competitions, if the number of competitive teams is fewer than 12, competition will be a single round robin pool. Prior to the regional tournaments the KSHSAA will draw for pool assignments and order. At the end of the round-robin pool play competition, the top three (3) schools from each pool will advance to the championship final round-robin competition. Pool play winners are teams with the best win-loss records. In the event of ties, see “Breaking Ties” on pages 11-12 of the Scholars Bowl Manual. First-, second- and third-place teams in each pool advance to the championship round-robin competition. Advancing schools will draw by lot their competition order (A, B, C, D, E or F). Tiebreaking procedures for the championship final round-robin competition will use the championship final round-robin matches only, not the pool play rounds.

The 2022-23 Scholars Bowl Manual was mailed to schools in July. This is a vital resource all coaches and administrators will want to become familiar with. It can also be accessed online once logged into the KSHSAA site. Simply click on the “Publications” link and under “Manuals” select “Scholars Bowl”.

Committee

An incredible group of 29 educators from across the state served on the Postseason Question Validation Committee November 11-12. What a process reviewing nearly 12,000 question submissions! Thank you to all the participating schools for submitting questions. Remember, regional and state questions are only as good as what is submitted by the participating schools.
