Summary

With a smaller field than the 2008 MFAT, Tiger Bowl I featured an eleven-game round-robin (although Lincoln had to leave after round 5 due to an emergency at home). At the conclusion of the round-robin, Parkway Central cleared the field with an 11-0 record. Helias A placed second with a 9-2 record, and SLUH and Fulton both went 8-3. SLUH was the winner of the PPG tiebreaker, and they took home third. The top scorer was Jason Liang from Parkway Central with 64.71 PPG, and the second scorer was Will Hack, also of Parkway Central, with 43.01 PPG. Both Parkway Central and Helias qualified teams for the 2009 PACE NSC.

This particular tournament may perhaps be most notorious, at least among the staff, for an incident the day before. After receiving the questions on Thursday night, Charlie Dees took them on Friday to the Mizzou copy center to have them copied. The staff grudgingly promised that they would finish the copies that afternoon and they would call him when it was complete. After waiting until dinner and receiving no calls, Charlie walked over to the copy center only to find it locked up with his only paper copy of the questions. A frantic phone call to co-director Alex Dzurick, who was busy eating dinner at the time, resulted in Alex having to, at the last minute, take a flash drive to the local FedEx-Kinkos that was nearing close time and get just enough copies of the set to run it efficiently. Fortunately, everything worked out in the end, and the tournament was run efficiently the next day.

Summary

This tournament has featured the smallest field yet of any Missouri-hosted high school tournament. Many last-minute dropouts reduced the field size to eight. Teams played a seven-game round-robin, in which NKC cleared the field at 7-0, followed by both Glasgow and Helias A at 5-2. The teams were divided into two brackets based on their round-robin finish, and played a carry-over playoffs. NKC cinched the title, finishing the day undefeated. Glasgow (7-3) and Helias A (6-4) took second and third, respectively. Grant Gates of NKC took the high-scorer title with 132.86 PPG, and "the other Grant" Monnig of Glasgow followed with 75.71 PPG. NKC and Glasgow qualified for the 2010 NSC.

This tournament held up the tradition of Tiger Bowl mishaps. Since usual Missouri co-director and Marching Mizzou member Alex Dzurick was unable to commit due to a potential (however unlikely) chance that the Missouri football team would have to play in the Big 12 championships, MOQBA member Sean Phillips graciously stepped in to assist Charlie Dees in tournament day operations. Luckily, Alex was able to be there, because due to an unfortunate incident, Sean injured his ankle the morning of the tournament and was unable to drive to the tournament building. Everything appeared to be going well for the day until the building became known to be double-booked with a fire rescue training institute. Everything was able to be rearranged to accommodate both events, and the rest of the tournament went off without a hitch.

Summary

The field cap for Tiger Bowl III was originally set at 18, but a huge boom of interest led to an increased limit of first 21, then 24, and finally 30 teams. With one drop just days before the tournament, a solid 29 team field remained on tournament day. This tournament was the largest non-MSHSAA event held on the Mizzou campus at the time, and as such, it required staff from nearly every corner of the state. By the end of a long day, Ladue came out on top to claim the tournament title.

Summary

The largest tournament ever held on the Mizzou campus (inclusive of MSHSAA state, since it features only 32 teams), and tied for the largest tournament in the state with WUHSAC. Twenty-five teams registered slots in the field within 24 hours of the official announcement of this event. The tournament ran as planned, and in the end Ladue A came out on top to win the event, followed closely by a strong Rock Bridge A team. The top 9 teams qualified for PACE NSC.
