The Missouri Quizbowl Alliance sponsored two teams in the National All-Star Academic Tournament (NASAT) on June 16-17 on the University of Kentucky campus in Lexington, KY. The teams were coached by Jason Loy and David Dennis.
The 29 team field was divided into four pools of 7 or 8 teams that each played a round robin on Saturday morning.
Based on preliminary record, the top three teams in each pool advanced to the championship tier. The twelve championship teams were divided into two pools of six for the playoffs in rounds 9-13. The top three teams in each playoff pool played a crossover playoff on Sunday morning in rounds 15-17 for first through sixth place, while the remaining six teams played a crossover playoff for seventh through twelfth place.
The fourth and fifth place teams from the preliminary rounds played a round robin on Saturday afternoon and Sunday to determine thirteenth through twentieth place, and the remaining teams played a round robin for twenty-first through twenty-ninth place.
