- In 2004 (though it might have been TWAIN 2003 instead), a player from Santa Ana Valley High School held the dubious distinction of being the tournament's leading scorer while leading his team to a last-place finish.
- In 2006, Santa Monica B's victory over Arcadia A, which would have placed them in the top 4, was thrown out after a bizarre protest situation in which a player for Santa Monica B lit a cigarette around tossup 3 or 4 of the match. Naturally, Charles Meigs was moderating this match.
