On behalf of the Pennsylvania NASAT committee, we are happy to announce our selections for this year’s National All-Star Scholastic Tournament, to be held this June 18th-19th at the University of Kentucky. NASAT pits teams consisting of the best players from each state against each other in a head to head setting. The event uses difficult collegiate questions and many of its players have gone on to outstanding careers in collegiate and higher level quizbowl. This is the only all star tournament to highlight teams on a state-by-state basis.
After a rigorous application and tryout process, the NASAT committee debated and selected the following 5 players for PA’s NASAT team. Without further ado, our selections for Pennsylvania’s NASAT team are as follows:
Jack Chaillet, Winchester Thurston School
Jake Deerin, Manheim Township High School
Gianni Manginelli, Pennsylvania Leadership Charter School
Brandon Roe, Lancaster Mennonite School
Alex Schmidt, Lehigh Valley Academy
Our First Alternate is:
Jaya Alagar, Alagar Homeschool
We congratulate all these excellent quizbowlers for their fantastic specialist knowledge at extremely tough college level questions during tryouts and commend the hard work put in both by the students and their coaches, teachers and mentors. We look forward to cheering on team PA in Lexington, KY this June!
