USQ Holds 2022 South Regional Championship
According to the plan for the US Quidditch (USQ) season, the USQ Spring Regional Championships were held in February and are now over.
The first one was the South Regional Championship, which was held on February 12 in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. It was the second time a USQ event was hosted there; the first one was World Cup VII in 2014. The South Regional Championship was split into two divisions, one for the collegiate division and one for the club division.
In the collegiate division, there were five Muggle quidditch teams that competed against each other in a round-robin format. University of Florida Club Quidditch won against the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Quidditch. The final score was 175–110. Both qualified for USQ Cup, along with Florida State University Quidditch in third place. For the University of Florida, it’s the third time it has won the regional title, as it did in 2019 and 2020.
The club division had more teams, 12 in all. USQ chose the pool play format for morning games, but afternoon and evening games used the stacked pool play format. The Bosnyan Bearsharks won first place, and Terminus Quidditch Atlanta won second place. But according to the USQ recap, it doesn’t look like either of them qualified for USQ Cup.
Another USQ regional championship after that was the Southwest Regional Championship, which was held on February 19–20 in Lake Charles, Louisiana. The last one was the West Regional Championship, which was held on February 26–27 in Tucson, Arizona.
