Announcement- Pennsylvania NASAT Teams 2017

Dear Friends,

On behalf of the Pennsylvania NASAT committee, we are once again happy to announce our selections for this year’s National All-Star Scholastic Tournament, to be held this June 24th-25th 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.

In keeping with changes to the format, Pennsylvania is now able to send two teams from to compete. Participants had to try out and were selected in a blind procedure by a five member panel of college players in the state. Without further ado:

The “A” Team for Pennsylvania will consist of:

Jaya Alagar, Alagar Homeschool

Rajan Alagar, Alagar Homeschool

Brandon Roe, Lancaster Mennonite

Alex Schmidt, Lehigh Valley Academy

Vishwa Shanmugam, Downingtown STEM Academy

The “B” Team for Pennsylvania will consist of:

Sebastian La Duca, Wallenpaupack

Sydney Preston, Camp Hill

Colton Sanden, Camp Hill

Hunter Stecko, Norwin

Jackie Wu, Downingtown East

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 by the students and their coaches, teachers, parents, and mentors. We look forward to cheering on team PA in Lexington, KY this June!
