ACHS Academic Team competes at Regional Championships

The ACHS Academic Team competed at the Governor's Cup Regional Championship on Saturday, February 19, 2022, in Bowling Green.

In team events, the team earned 2nd Place overall in the Future Problem Solving competition, earning another trip to the State Championship for the perennial state title contenders. The team makes its way back to Louisville and the State Championships coming off a season in which they advanced all the way to the World Championships in 2021. Team members competing in the Future Problem Solving event were: Amber Loy, Abby Claywell, Caylin Coffman, and Ada Gass.

The team was also represented at Region by Bailey Watts and Ronan Flaherty in individual competition, along with Joseph Kotter in the Quick Recall team competition.

Watts fought hard in her Language Arts and Arts and Humanities events, just one spot away from accomplishing the very rare feat of double qualifying for State in just her Freshman year. Watts finished a close 6th place in both events in what many of the Region coaches have considered one of the most competitive 4th Region fields the area has ever seen in Governor's Cup.

The State Championships will be held in Louisville at the Galt House Hotel on March 19-21, 2022.
