A Geographic Look at the HSNCT

Filed under: Pre-Tournament Coverage — Harry @ 8:11 pm

(This post has now been updated to reflect teams being added and dropped, as well as teams coming off the standby list)

As we count down the days until the start of the HSNCT, we figured we’d put together a map of all 240 teams currently signed up. It is interesting to see where clusters of teams are and where there are Quizbowl “deserts”.

(Blue, red, green, and teal pins represent 1, 2, 3, and 4 teams respectively from one school, and yellow pins represent small schools.)

In addition, here are the number of teams represented by each state:

Texas – 23
Georgia – 18
Minnesota – 16
California – 14
Illinois – 14
Ohio – 14
Michigan – 13
Missouri – 13
North Carolina – 12
Kentucky – 8
Alabama – 7
Florida – 7
Virginia – 7
Arizona – 6
Arkansas – 6
New Jersey – 6
New York – 6
Pennsylvania – 6
Oklahoma – 5
South Carolina – 5
Tennessee – 5
Indiana – 4
Maryland – 4
Wisconsin – 4
Delaware – 3
District of Columbia – 3
Iowa – 3
New Hampshire – 2
Connecticut – 1
Idaho – 1
Louisiana – 1
Mississippi – 1
Ontario – 1
West Virginia – 1

  1. It also might be interesting to see a similar map for NAC, to see if some of those “deserts” are actually attending it instead. (Unfortunately, the NAC website doesn’t print the state for each team.)
