ACHS Academic Team Governor's Cup District Champions
The Adair County High School Academic Team are Governor's Cup District Champions once again after sweeping all team events and capturing the overall crown at the event held on Saturday, January 21, 2023. The competition was hosted on home turf at Adair County High School, and the Quick Recall team swept through each round of Quick Recall undefeated. In addition, the Future Problem Solving team earned all judges' top rankings for 1st Place in their competition.
The team was comprised of Bailey Watts, Trey Stephens, Joseph Kotter, and Abigail Kemp for the Quick Recall competition. Trevir Andrews, Tristin Andrews, Mia Schneider, Abby Bullock, and Trina Nguyen completed the team's testing lineup, along with the aforementioned Quick Recall competitors.
The Future Problem Solving Championship team was comprised of Abigail Kemp, Abby Claywell, Trina Nguyen, and Cameron Yarberry. This was one of Adair's youngest ever District Championship rosters, with three of the four FPS members competing as Freshmen. The team worked together to complete the 6-step process on the topic of Digital Reality.
Remarkable still was the youth representing the championship Quick Recall team, which consisted of one Junior, two Sophomores, and one Freshman.
All 9 individual written assessment competitors Adair entered won at least one medal, earning each of them a qualification for the Regional Championship. Overall, the team won 13 medals across the 6 individual categories of individual competition.
Bailey Watts (Sophomore) won 1st Place in both Language Arts and Arts and Humanities competition, giving her back-to-back District Champion honors in Arts and Humanities going back to last year. Watts was also among the highest scores across the Region in both events.
Tristin Andrews (Sophomore) took home the District Championship in Science. Trevir Andrews (Sophomore) completed the formidable brother-brother combination with a 2nd Place finish in Science. Together, the two Andrews siblings also earned medals for 2nd Place and 3rd Place respectively in Mathematics competition.
Trey Stephens (Junior) also completed an impressive double medal finish to his day as an individual competitor. Stephens earned 2nd Place in Social Studies and qualified for Region in Arts and Humanities as well with a 5th Place finish. Stephens is a defending State Finals qualifier from last year's Regionals Social Studies event where he will advance to compete for the title once again.
Joseph Kotter (Sophomore) earned his first high school Regionals qualification by completing the 1-2-3 Adair sweep of the Science category with the Andrews siblings with a 3rd place finish. Kotter has worked hard to get to this point, and after just his second year at the high school level will advance to compete against Regional foes at the next level.
Abigail Kemp (Freshman) took home 4th Place in Language Arts. This will also quality her for Region, a rare feat for someone competing against upperclassmen in just her first year of high school competition.
Adair also completed a 3-person qualification in the Composition competition. Mia Schneider (Sophomore) captured the District Championship with her 1st Place finish. Abby Bullock (Junior) made her Academic Team debut with a 3rd Place finish. Trina Nguyen (Freshman) completed the triple qualification for Adair students by earning 5th Place in the event. Competitors in this event are presented with an argumentative prompt in which they are on a timer to complete their best compelling written arguments in response to the scenario provided.
This is the school's 16th District Championship since 2006, the longest such string of Championships in all of Region 4, and one of the most consistent stretches in all of Kentucky during that time frame. Governor's Cup Regional Championships will be held on February 13 and 18 at Greenwood High School in Bowling Green.
