Welcome to the Kentucky Collegiate Quick Recall League.  Our league is comprised of colleges throughout the state of Kentucky and surrounding regions.  If you are interested in joining our league, please contact Peter Rodski

The purpose of the Kentucky Collegiate Quick Recall League is to promote amiable competition within an academic setting.  Through the academic tournament process, the KCQRL hopes to foster good will and provide a forum in which academic excellence may be rewarded throughout the commonwealth of Kentucky and surrounding areas.



Our league was formed in 1988, under the direction of Barbara Napier, Linda Cornett, and Gordon Loberger.  It began with a small tournament at Murray State University, including Murray State, Western Kentucky University, Tennessee Martin, and Austin Peay State University.  Since then the league has seen over 30 colleges and universities compete on a regular basis throughout the year.


Currently, our League Champion in Division I is the University of Louisville / Transylvania and in Division II it is Jefferson Community & Technical College.  Jefferson Community & Technical College won the Community College National Championship in 2016, and Louisville finished 14th in the nation (Division I) in the 2016 Intercollegiate Championship Tournament.



Normally we have about 6-7 league matches per year, or roughly 1 per month throughout the academic year.

The Kentucky Collegiate Quick Recall League is open to any college who wants to compete in academic quizbowl.  Quiz bowl is a fast-paced buzzer competition in which teams of four players compete to answer questions that cover academic subjects like literature and science as well as the broader world of popular culture and current events.
