The 2022 PACE National Scholastic Championship was held on June 11th & 12th at the Hyatt Regency O'Hare in Rosemont, IL.

Lambert (Suwanee, GA) became the first new team in four years to win an NSC after defeating Thomas Jefferson (Alexandria, VA) in back-to-back games by scores of 390-320 and 420-380. This was the first time any team had won an NSC advantaged final from the disadvantaged position [2]; in the second game, Lambert converted the last six tossups in a row to make up a 170-point deficit [3]. Lambert's Aadi Karthik led the field in scoring for the second consecutive year with 166 PPG through the preliminary rounds, and finished the tournament with more powers individually than all but two other entire teams.

Kinkaid finished third after losing a finals play-in match to Lambert, while Strake Jesuit finished fourth.
