South Callaway competes in the Mid-Missouri Conference against quiz bowl teams from North Callaway, Southern Boone, Harrisburg, and Hallsville. Tipton does not field a quiz bowl team at this time.
+
South Callaway formerly competed in the [[Mid-Missouri Conference]] against teams from [[Southern Boone]], [[North Callaway]], [[Harrisburg]], and [[Hallsville]]. In 2012, the school became a member of the Show-Me Conference alongside nine other schools, including a very active [[Tuscumbia]] program.
 +
 
 +
The school has oscillated between Class 2 and Class 3 in MSHSAA's system, and being centrally located, has also changed district numbers within classes many times.
  
The school was classified by MSHSAA as Class 3, District 4 in the 2003-2005 and 2006-2008 cycles, and as Class 3, District 7 in the 2008-2010 cycle.
+
The school's largest historical rivalry was by far that with Hallsville, a formidable conference and district opponent. The team has also played several high profile matches against teams from Osage and New Haven.
  
The school's largest rivalry is by far that with Hallsville, a formidable conference and district opponent. Though fierce quiz bowl rivals, the two schools' captains in 2007-08, [[Alex Dzurick]] and [[Taylor Smith]], traveled together with some other fellow high schoolers to the 2008 [[Truman State]] mirror of the [[Zot Bowl]] summer novice open tournament.
+
==Tournament Attendance==
 +
While South Callaway's schedule for many years was dominated by conference matches (largely duals or small round-robin events), the team has started to sporadically attend more Saturday tournaments. In 2008, the team attended multiple MSHSAA-style tournaments, including the [[Warrenton Tournament|Warrenton Warrior Classic]] and the [[William Woods Academic Tournament]]. Since then, an increasing number of [[MOQBA]]-certified events in the area has led to a South Callaway team slowly becoming more active in the local circuit, competing in a mixture of duals, MSHSAA-style events, and national-format events. It would appear that the 2013 [[Show-Me Conference]] tournament may have been the first nationals-format event that the high school team attended, with sporadic attendance at 20/20 events in subsequent years.  
  
A north-south rivalry exists between South Callaway and perpetual archrival North Callaway, and some regional rivalries also involves Fulton and Southern Boone as well.
+
===Significant Results===
 +
The team placed third in their division at the 2017 [[OMAR]], bettering their eighth-place finish from the previous year's iteration. By winning the 2017 St. Elizabeth Invitational (MSHSAA format on NAQT questions), the team earned and accepted a bid to the [[SSNCT]], where they went 4-5 in the Traditional Public division. In 2014-2015, the team played in 20/20 tournaments at [[Helias]] and [[Hallsville]] and a small after-school invitational at [[Calvary Lutheran]].
  
==Tournament Attendance==
+
==Hosting==
South Callaway's tournament attendance has been consistently sparse in recent years. The schedule had mostly consisted of conference duals and the occasional county tournament. Since South Callaway transitioned into the newly-formed Mid-Missouri conference, a conference tournament has become an annual fixture. In 2008, due to the influence of the [[Missouri Academic Competition Message Board]] on captain [[Alex Dzurick]], the team attended multiple tournaments, including the [[Warrenton Tournament|Warrenton Warrior Classic]] and the [[William Woods Academic Tournament]]. Despite fervent invitation from the [[Missouri]] team featuring alum Dzurick and a location less than an hour away, the team has not yet entered any of Missouri's tournaments.
+
South Callaway has hosted several conference and regional dual matches as well as MSHSAA district tournaments. The school announced that it would host the pyramidal South Callaway Invitational in the 2019 spring season, but the event ended up being canceled.
 +
 
 +
==Middle School/Elementary==
 +
South Callaway's middle school program has become more active recently, such as by competing in recent iterations of the winter middle school tournament at Tuscumbia. The team has also competed in pyramidal quad tournaments at Hallsville.
 +
 
 +
The 6th grade team, coached by Alex Dzurick, competed at the 2013 Tuscumbia Winter tournament in the elementary division, taking home third place (6-2 record) in their first-ever outing. The 6th graders also attended the Show-Me Conference-sponsored Knowledge Bowl for elementary teams where they took 5th place in the 6th grade division. At the 2013 Knowledge Bowl, South Callaway's 5th grade team took home 1st place under coach Leah Cave. Two teams of 6th graders competed at the 2013 Tuscumbia Spring tournament where they took 3rd and 5th places, amassing records of 4-3 and 3-4.

Opponents and Rivalries

South Callaway formerly competed in the Mid-Missouri Conference against teams from Southern Boone, North Callaway, Harrisburg, and Hallsville. In 2012, the school became a member of the Show-Me Conference alongside nine other schools, including a very active Tuscumbia program.

The school has oscillated between Class 2 and Class 3 in MSHSAA's system, and being centrally located, has also changed district numbers within classes many times.

The school's largest historical rivalry was by far that with Hallsville, a formidable conference and district opponent. The team has also played several high profile matches against teams from Osage and New Haven.

Tournament Attendance

While South Callaway's schedule for many years was dominated by conference matches (largely duals or small round-robin events), the team has started to sporadically attend more Saturday tournaments. In 2008, the team attended multiple MSHSAA-style tournaments, including the Warrenton Warrior Classic and the William Woods Academic Tournament. Since then, an increasing number of MOQBA-certified events in the area has led to a South Callaway team slowly becoming more active in the local circuit, competing in a mixture of duals, MSHSAA-style events, and national-format events. It would appear that the 2013 Show-Me Conference tournament may have been the first nationals-format event that the high school team attended, with sporadic attendance at 20/20 events in subsequent years.

Significant Results

The team placed third in their division at the 2017 OMAR, bettering their eighth-place finish from the previous year's iteration. By winning the 2017 St. Elizabeth Invitational (MSHSAA format on NAQT questions), the team earned and accepted a bid to the SSNCT, where they went 4-5 in the Traditional Public division. In 2014-2015, the team played in 20/20 tournaments at Helias and Hallsville and a small after-school invitational at Calvary Lutheran.

Hosting

South Callaway has hosted several conference and regional dual matches as well as MSHSAA district tournaments. The school announced that it would host the pyramidal South Callaway Invitational in the 2019 spring season, but the event ended up being canceled.

Middle School/Elementary

South Callaway's middle school program has become more active recently, such as by competing in recent iterations of the winter middle school tournament at Tuscumbia. The team has also competed in pyramidal quad tournaments at Hallsville.

The 6th grade team, coached by Alex Dzurick, competed at the 2013 Tuscumbia Winter tournament in the elementary division, taking home third place (6-2 record) in their first-ever outing. The 6th graders also attended the Show-Me Conference-sponsored Knowledge Bowl for elementary teams where they took 5th place in the 6th grade division. At the 2013 Knowledge Bowl, South Callaway's 5th grade team took home 1st place under coach Leah Cave. Two teams of 6th graders competed at the 2013 Tuscumbia Spring tournament where they took 3rd and 5th places, amassing records of 4-3 and 3-4.
