One of only 10 teams in the Florida College System invited to compete, Seminole State finished with a 7-2 record, losing only to No. 2 Valencia College and No. 1 Chipola College. Chipola and Valencia are ranked No. 1 and No. 2 in the nation as well as in the state based on the National Academic Quiz Tournament (NAQT) Community College rankings. Seminole State team member Dustin Lore made the state All-Star Team, finishing fourth individually. Brandon Gerber, Dennis Hogan, and Robert Crawford were the other Seminole State team members who competed in the state tournament.

Seminole State’s team was very strong in mathematics and the sciences because all four young men are engineering majors. Stephanie Lore, Seminole State’s humanities and literature specialist, was unable to attend the Ocala tournament.

Other schools invited to the state tournament were Pasco-Hernandez Community College, Pensacola State College, Gulf Coast State College, College of Central Florida, Northwest Florida State College, Broward College and Indian River State College.
