ACES Academic Team takes top honors at regional competition
By Lisa Newell-Hare
Selected by the Kentucky Association for Academic Competition (KAAC), Adair County Elementary School served as the Region 11 Host for Elementary Governor's Cup on Tuesday, March 2, and Saturday, March 6, 2021.
The fourteen schools within Region 11 were Adair County Elementary School, Clinton County Middle School, Cumberland County Elementary School, Green County Intermediate School, Hopkins Elementary School, Metcalfe County Elementary School, Nancy Elementary School, Pine Knot Elementary School, Russell Springs Elementary School, Salem Elementary School, Science Hill Elementary School, Southern Elementary School, Wayne County Monticello Elementary, and Whitley City Elementary School. Each team competed virtually from either their school or home.
With no state competition for elementary levels, Adair County Elementary School Academic Team ended its season with a hard-earned victory of top honors on Saturday, March 6, 2021.
"At the end of the afternoon Saturday, all the time and hard work these students had put in during the season had paid off," stated Lisa Newell-Hare, one of the team's two coaches, along with Jeana Pike. "They have once again proven that Adair County students take academics to another level. We hope this serves as a foundation as these students move on to middle school and high school Governor's Cups."
Accomplishments for Adair County students at Regional Competition included:
The Quick Recall team won matches against Cumberland County Elementary (28-12), Salem Elementary (28-8), Russell Springs Elementary (34-7), and a final match against Clinton County Middle School (23-16). The members of Quick Recall were Braylee Corbin, Kalynn Corbin, Wiley Feese, Suzy Kotter, Ady McMinoway, Patrick Oliver, Pierce Stotts, and Adrian Zinati. "It's humbling [Quick Recall] went undefeated," Coach Lisa Newell-Hare said about her team. "The final match against Clinton County was a real nail-biter, back-and-forth affair until ACES pulled ahead at the end. The many hours spent practicing virtually as a team and independent practice at home paid off for us."
With the season over, the returning team members are already eyeing a repeat performance next year. With one of the youngest teams Adair County Elementary School has ever had, the majority of the team will be returning for the 2021-2022 season.
