2015-2016 marked a lot of milestones in the High School Jesters League. They surpassed 250 Jesters shows and they had more than 20 teams. ECTA were in season favorites the year prior but found themselves winning the championship without even expecting it. They beat a brand new NWCTA team in very controversial fashion. ECTA won on the only mathematical tie a Championship has seen in the High School Jesters League. With a split judges decision, ECTA edged out NWCTA to take home the trophy. With only one student graduating as a senior from both ECTA and NWCTA combined, the 2016-2017 season leaves everyone anxious for the possibilities.
2016 Most Valuable Performer - James "Duke" Gilgallon Duke's first time doing improv led him to winning an MVP award ahead of 100's of other students. Duke wasn't sure on his first day of practice if he even wanted to try improv, so he signed his name "Duke" on the sign up list as a fake name in case he never wanted to come back. Duke stuck as his nickname, and the rest is history. Duke helped lead his new NWCTA team to a championship show with ECTA. Duke had the amazing benefit of being on the same team with another student who was nominated for MVP as well. With both of them being juniors, expectations are high for Duke and the rest of the NWCTA team in 2017.
