NAQT Oklahoma State Championship

The NAQT Oklahoma State Championship is an annual tournament held in Oklahoma. It is the main alternative to the non-pyramidal OSSAA State Championship. Until 2005, the Boren Cup at the University of Oklahoma doubled as the NAQT state tournament; after its establishment as an independent event, it was hosted annually by Oklahoma State University 2005 to 2015. Stewardship over the tournament has since been taken over by Tracey Hickman, and it has used multiple hosts, including the University of Central Oklahoma, the University of Oklahoma, and Norman High School.


From 2001 to 2022, the state championship featured a single division comprised of both large and small schools competing for a single state championship title, with the exception of 2007[1], which featured separate playoff divisions; from 2023 on, the tournament was formally split into two divisions, though the champions of each division still contest an exhibition final to determine an overall state champion.

Edmond Memorial, Edmond Santa Fe, and Norman North have each won four overall state titles; Yukon has won three, while Booker T. Washington, and Jenks have each won twice, and Mustang, Norman, and Stillwater have each won once. Hilldale, Drummond, and OSSM have each won one small school title, while Yukon have won the only official large school title.

Small School Championships

Prior to 2023, small school titles were sporadically awarded in addition to the overall state championship title. In 2007, small and large schools competed in mixed preliminary pools, before being separated for playoff sequences. In 2015, a small school title was awarded to the highest-placing small school team, though the tournament did not feature a separate small school division. A formal Small School division, fully separate from large schools, was established in 2023.

Large School Championships

With the official separation of large and small school divisions, a separate large school title was established in 2023, separate from the overall state championship. Yukon were the inaugural winners, and went on to claim the overall final by defeating small school champions OSSM.

  1. The 2007 championship featured mixed preliminary divisions, in which each of the top-placing large schools scored direct or transitive victories against each of the top-placing small schools. As such, the large school champions are listed in this graphic as the "official" state champions
  2. 2.0 2.1 2.2 Some tournaments ended in an unbroken tie for second or third place. Such ties are listed on this page in order of Points Per Game, with the tying position indicated by each team's name.
  3. A suitable host location for the 2019 state championship could not be found in time, so no tournament was held that year.
