Team Missouri

The Missouri Quizbowl Alliance has sponsored Team Missouri in the National All-Star Academic Tournament annually since the tournament's inception in 2010. As of 2024, Missouri is one of only three states that have competed in every NASAT!

2024 NASAT - June 15-16, 2024

The Missouri Quizbowl Alliance sponsored two teams in the 2024 National All-Star Academic Tournament, which was held virtually. Team Missouri A brought home Missouri's second NASAT championship, Team Missouri B earned its best finish ever by tying for fourth place, and Yrwin Batan and Camden Williams were the top two individual scorers!
