2019-20 MNHSQB South Division

[ West Division | East Division | South Division | Standings ]


The South Division of the 2019-20 Minnesota High School Quiz Bowl league will play its games at Burnsville Senior High School. The school's address is:

Burnsville Senior High School
600 E. Highway 13
Burnsville, MN 55337

The host school contact is Burnsville's quiz bowl coach, Les Moffitt.


This pool will compete on these Thursdays: 11/21, 1/9, and 2/6.


All teams and moderators should park in the main parking lot south of the school.

Cars and vans may park in any space not specifically reserved. I do not have specific instructions on where buses may park, but there is a loop in front of the main doors that allow for convenient drop-offs.

Game Times:

The first game begins at 6:00. The last game is scheduled to end at 9:00. Teams should plan to arrive by 5:45 so they can take in any last-minute announcements. Teams that have not arrived by 6:15 will begin forfeiting their matches.

Meeting Area:

Teams will gather in the Language Arts Foyer (the same meeting area on the second floor as was used last year).

Televised Games:

Burnsville High School has a television production facility; thanks to the generosity of Burnsville Community Television, we will be able to tape one game during each preliminary round.

Every school's A team will be taped at least once. Once that criterion has been satisfied, the most significant matches will be taped, subject to the constraint that no A team will be taped a third time until every A team has been taped twice.

Teams that do not wish to have their games recorded, should mention that fact when they register for the division. The default assumption is that a school would like to have its teams' games recorded.

No time-outs will be allowed during taped games, but substitution is still permitted before and after the lighting round.

Teams participating in taped games will be required to submit that week's rosters in advance, usually on Monday. Normally teams do not have to finalize their rosters until the day of the competition.

Schools will receive DVDs of the games in which their teams competed.

If your school or city has a cable channel and would like to air some or all of the games, please contact Tina LeGarde to find out about the details of doing so.


Teams may bring their own food or order from an outside source. There are also vending machines in the cafeteria.


The regular season is now over; no further pairings will be posted except for the playoffs at Burnsville.


Current standings through the games of February 6, 2020. Note that this link includes the entire league, not just the South Division.

Burnsville, Chaska, Prior Lake, Eastview, and Providence Academy qualified for the playoffs (and thus also for the 2020 NAQT High School National Championship Tournament) from this division.
