Putting the A-Team victory into perspective: Simply amazing
There were over 160 teams competing in the State Finals alone. Except for Russell Independent, Adair County was significantly the smallest school out of those in the Top 5 in terms of total points. Luke Maupin was No. 1 in Social Studies, competing against 1,000 of the state's brightest.
Special ColumbiaMagazine.com comment
To answer the question on Columbia Magazine about the scope of the accomplishment at State, over 160 was the number of teams represented by individuals or competing teams just at State Finals alone.
That's not taking into consideration the teams eliminated at Regional level and District level.
So, that puts Adair County's 5th place ranking in overall team points into perspective.The run of four Top 10's in total points in the last five years is another notable achievement. In the year in which Adair County was not a Top 10, the program was still Top 15 out of the entire state.To further put the Quick Recall and FPS top 5 placements into perspective, there are well over 250 teams which begin at District level each year at the high school level.
Luke Maupin's victory in Social Studies begins with well over 1000 students competing in each separate written assessment category at the District level and working their way through competition.
At all levels of competition, KAAC reports "Over 30,000 students representing over 1200 public and private schools" participate in KAAC events.
Basically, when you're looking at the team accomplishment in terms of the scope and range of the accomplishment, it's the same schools which we see in those charts which get printed each year in the newspapers that have the end-of-the-year statewide testing scores posted.
Only a very small fraction of schools across the state do not take part in KAAC Governor's Cup and certainly ALL of those top tier state testing schools are involved in the competition. Just something to consider when you look at the grand scope of the accomplishment from year to year.
There are no "classes" or "divisions" of competition in Governor's Cup points. Not counting the independent/private school district at Russell Independent in Ashland, Adair was significantly the smallest school out of those Top 5 in total points.
