Adair County School District
The ACHS Academic Team brought home the school's 9th consecutive Governor's Cup District Championship on Monday, January 27, 2014. The team swept 1st Place in every category at the event, held at Russell County High School. The Quick Recall team advanced through each round of the tournament with an undefeated run, and the Future Problem Solving team earned all 1st Place scores in their evaluations.
In addition to the two victories in the team events, several of Adair County's individual competitors advanced to Region with a Top 5 finish. In Social Studies, Brittany Curry (Grade 11) won 1st, teammate Timothy Watson (Grade 11) finished in 2nd, and Zane Sanders (Grade 10) advanced to Region by earning 5th Place in his first even high school event.
Brittany Curry walked away with another 1st Place finish when she was announced winner of the Mathematics competition as well. Teammates Kyle Castaneda (Grade 12) and Leane Blackwelder (Grade 12) finished 3rd and 5th respectively and will both advance to Region as well.
In Science, Timothy Watson doubled up on advancing to Region by capturing 1st Place in that event. Kyle Castaneda earned 2nd Place to advance in the category alongside Watson.
In Language Arts, Rebecca Montgomery (Grade 10) finished with one of the highest scores in the Region with her 1st Place finish in the event. Language Arts was another area for first-time competitors for the team as Treyton Grant (Grade 10) won 3rd Place. Laura Akin (Grade 11) was awarded 1st Place in Arts and Humanities for the team in her first year as a competitor with the team.
Jessi Taylor (Grade 11) continued her winning ways in English Composition by getting 1st Place. She is a returning member to the team that advanced to State Finals last year in the same category. Landon Coomer (Grade 11) finished in 2nd Place in the event and Rebekah York (Grade 11) finished in 4th.
Adair County had the most individual winners overall at the District Championships and will be among the most well-represented teams in the Region based on the number of competitors to advance.
The Future Problem Solving team consists of Kyle Castaneda, Sarah McQuaide (Grade 11), Amber Turner (Grade 11), and Jessi Taylor. Three of the four members are returning runners-up at State Finals and defending Regional Champions.
The Quick Recall members are Timothy Watson, Brittany Curry, Rebecca Montgomery, Jessi Taylor, Alan Godsey, Treyton Grant, Zane Sanders, Austin Bradshaw, Courtney Green, and Tyler Moore. The team consists entirely of underclassmen, making their District Championship in Quick Recall a rare accomplishment for such a young team.
ACHS Coach Brett Reliford commented about the team's work this year by stating, "We are thrilled to continue the success of the program this year at District. This team has had a lot of obstacles to overcome that some teams from our program in the past have not had to face. We have worked hard to take care of unexpected twists and turns along the way, and I cannot say enough about the way this team has rallied together to make this season a success. I wish everyone could see what it takes to achieve this level of success because it would bring a smile to people's faces to realize how devoted the kids have been in reaching this goal this season. To do this with many previously inexperienced players and to be undefeated in Quick Recall with a team of all underclassmen is something we are all very proud of. Our Future Problem Solving team and their experience has been a rock for the team as a whole, and our new leaders in test-taking and Quick Recall are following suit."
The Governor's Cup Regional Championships will be held at South Warren High School, 8140 Nashville Road, Bowling Green, KY 42101 on February 11 and 15, 2014. Times will be announced later. - Shamarie Claiborne, Media Publicity Coordinator, Adair County Schools
