Chipola Wins Brain Bowl National Championship

Chipola College A defeated Chipola B 405-175 in the last round of the playoffs and 445-175 in the first game of the finals to claim the National Academic Quiz Tournament (NAQT) Championship, the first national title in school history. Both Chipola teams were undefeated until they played each other in the last round of the playoffs, and Chipola A won that match. Chipola A was then granted a one-game advantage going into the final and won the first game to win the title.
Dallin Kelson played solo as Chipola A and finished the tournament as the top individual scorer as well. This is the first time a player has won the national championship competing as a solo team. Kelson averaged 374 points per game, the highest scoring average ever for a community college team and he broke the individual scoring record by 20 points per game.
