The Bulldog High School Academic Tournament, or BHSAT, is an annual spring tournament for high school teams hosted by Yale. The tournament is traditionally a housewritten set by the Yale team. Once one of the premier tournaments in the nation, BHSAT attracted teams from across the entire country well into the 2000s; it eventually lost a lot of its national field as fewer teams made the trip to what was perceived as a mediocre set.
For the 2011 edition forward, though, editors Matt Jackson and John Lawrence began to ensure that the questions meet the best standards of modern quizbowl writing each year, and begun re-expanding the field out to a national audience, both by inviting teams to the main site and by establishing multiple mirror sites in other circuits across the nation.
Note: it is presumed that the tournaments has happened for 20 consecutive years; this may not be the case.
- The editions including and prior to 2009 featured a single-elimination playoff with no third-place game, so the teams listed as third and fourth place would actually be tied for third place.
