The State College Area High School Knowledge Masters team is a high school quizbowl team in State College, Pennsylvania. Members also do Science Bowl and Ocean Bowl.
State College holds two records for winning streaks:
- They are the only team to win either a particular national or any national in four straight years, by winning all four PACE NSC tournaments from 1998 to 2001. They also won an NAC title and an NAQT title during that timeframe. State College is the only team to successfully defend its title as NSC champion (and did so again in 2011).
- Secondly, State College holds the record for a game-by-game winning streak at the PACE NSC. Their 37-victory streak is bookended by playoff bracket losses to Henry Ford II in 1998 and Georgetown Day in 2001.
Their coach from 1997 until 2011, Julie Gittings, is the recipient of the 2007 Benjamin Cooper Academic Ambassador Award. Under Gittings's tenure as coach, State College racked up more title victories than any other high school, with a total of 6 NSC wins and 2 HSNCT wins; it remains to be seen whether any other coach or school can duplicate the same feat.
Until recently, State College hosted SCAT, a spring NAQT IS-A Tournament.
