Congratulations to The Harker School for winning the 2005 Cardinal Junior Classic!
Cardinal Junior Classic, run by the Stanford Quiz Bowl Club, occurred on
Sunday, October 23, 2005 at Menlo-Atherton
High School. Fifteen teams attended, from the following eight schools:
Menlo-Atherton, Bentley, Mira Loma (in Sacramento), Menlo School, Harker,
Mission San Jose, Evergreen Valley, St. Joseph Notre Dame.
Teams began the day by playing 4 or 5 random opponents. Stats and standings
for those rounds can be found
Then, teams were put into brackets a through c (top 5, next 5, next 5). Each bracket played a round-robin. Stats and standings
for those rounds can be found
The top 5 teams played in bracket "a". Here are the results for that
bracket (record from prelims did not carry over):
Harker A (4-0)
MSJ A (3-1)
Bentley A (1-3)
Bentley B (1-3)
Mira Loma (1-3)
Harker A went undefeated to win the tournament, and Mission San Jose A
took second place with a 3-1 record. Those two teams both qualified for NAQT's
School National Championship Tournament to be held in Chicago in
June. The third and last nationals qualifying spot went to Bentley. (Since we had a three-way tie for third place, the two

won, 260-120 and then played Bentley A. Bentley A won that match 460-155.)
