The 2016 MSHSAA State Championship was held on May 6-7, 2016. Classes 1 and 2 competed on Friday and Classes 3 and 4 played on Saturday.

Questions for Districts and State were provided by NAQT for the sixth year. The use of existing sets for some questions made three A sets (147A, 149A, 155A) and one IS set (156) unavailable for use during the regular season in Missouri.

Districts

Sixteen district tournaments in each of the four classes were held on April 16. District championship game matchups are posted here

Richland, which had advanced to each of the first twenty MSHSAA state championships and was the last remaining school never to miss the state tournament, was defeated by eventual Class 2 state champion Calvary Lutheran in the District 10 championship game.

Sectionals

The Sectionals round was the first round of the state championship and took place on April 27. Sectionals consisted of best two-of-three matchups between the winners of two adjacent districts. The winner of each sectional advanced to the remaining rounds of the state championship.

Records

  • Michael Powers' total of 90 tossups sets a new record for most tossups answered by a freshman in the tournament's 21 year history, shattering William Gentry's mark of 67 tossups the previous year, which was believed to be the record at that time. Michael is the eighth individual in tournament history to answer 90 or more tossups (of 250) in one state tournament as a non-senior. He is also likely the first freshman ever to lead a class in individual scoring.
  • William Gentry's tournament-leading total of 91 tossups was the second most scored to date by a sophomore at MSHSAA State, but well short of Max Schindler's 135 tossups in his sophomore year. Max's all-time record was broken by Michael Powers the next year with 138 tossups as a sophomore.
