News from Adair County High School A-Teams

Adair County High School continued the tradition of academic competition excellence in Governor's Cup Region competition on February 18, 2012 at Bowling Green High School with a pair of Regional Championships to add to their collection. The Future Problem Solving team grabbed 1st Place once again and advanced to State Finals with their championship effort.



The ACHS Future Problem Solving team has now advanced to State Finals eight years in a row, one of only three schools in the state to claim that achievement.

Heather Jackson wins individual regional championship

Heather Jackson also captured an individual Regional Championship in Language Arts. Jackson's score in both Language Arts and Arts and Humanities earns her a slot at Governor's Cup State Finals.

Heather Jackson also eclipsed a record for previous Adair County High School teams with the highest Language Arts score the team has ever made. Jackson's score was also a Top 10 score statewide at Regional competition.

This is Jackson's second year in a row of making it to State Finals competition in Language Arts. She also continues a dominant streak of eight State Finals appearances in a row for the Adair County High School team in the Language Arts event. In addition to her placement in Language Arts, Jackson secured an impressive 2nd Place finish in Arts and Humanities, which will also earn her a spot at Governor's Cup Finals in that event.

Kyle Mann qualifies for state competition

Joining Jackson will be Kyle Mann, as he placed 5th in Social Studies. This was Mann's first state qualification in the event. This continues an impressive seven out of eight years in a row that Adair will advance to State in the Social Studies competition.

Coach Brett Reliford commented about the achievements. "We're very proud of our placements in the individual and FPS events. Making it to State is a goal very early in the school year for many students all over Kentucky. To see our school's standard of State Finals qualification continuing for the eighth year in a row just overwhelms me. To see how much we all grow as a team and how competitive we can be among so many other schools every single year is really something you can't put into words and just speaks volumes foritself when you witness it firsthand."

Quick Recall takes 3rd overall

In Quick Recall action, the team took 3rd place overall. The team started with the most difficult bracket to work through during the day, facing off against the highest rated teams in the Region in each round.

In Round One, the team started as the talk of the tournament by getting out to an amazing 21-1 lead at the end of the first half against 2011 Region Runners-Up Barren County. After defeating Barren, Adair won against their next opponent, South Warren, by another impressive margin of 16 points. In a head-to-head with Bowling Green High School and Glasgow High School, the team fell just short of State Finals qualification, losing by only one question to Bowling Green in a very competitive match.

Most competitive 4th Region QR ever

"The Quick Recall team faced off in the most competitive 4th Region from top to bottom since I've been coaching," Coach Reliford noted. "We knew going in that there were six great teams who were legit contenders to take this year's title. Every spectator at the event saw a fierce head-to-head with Adair County, Glasgow, and Bowling Green at the end of the day, and they all recognized just how good each of the three teams were. In the end, one of the three had to be the ones to miss out on the State Finals berth, and this time was just our turn. Our kids played amazing Quick Recall all day long."

Future Problem Solving members taking home the Regional Championship were Emmalee Baker, Roslin Wilson, Kyle Castaneda, and Sarah McQuaide. Fellow FPS members Abby Walker, Leane Blackwelder, and Amber Turner comprised the remaining members of the FPS squad preparing for Regional Championships.

Quick Recall starters included Eddie Franklin, Kyle Mann, Heather Jackson, and Matt Rogers. Accompanying the Quick Recall team and their bid to Region were Timothy Watson, Katherine Blackwelder, Brittany Curry, Jessi Taylor, Anna Parson, Laura Akin, Jesse Woods, Cody Giles, and Landon Coomer.

Governor's Cup State Finals are held in Lexington at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, 401 West High Street Lexington, KY 40507, on March 10-12, 2012.
