Academic team finishes season at state

Grace Rose

The West Jessamine Academic Team recently competed in the region 11 competition. The quick-recall team beat Scott County 45-17 and then Western Hills 33-13 in their first two rounds of competition. They then went on to defeat Woodford County 36-15, but ultimately lost to Dunbar in the finals. Nevertheless, the team finished in the top two in the region and was able to punch their ticket to the state competition. West also had six individuals move onto state for their written assessments.

At state, the quick recall team lost the first round, won the second and lost the third. Although faced with a loss at state, the academic team deserves congratulations, as it is a huge accomplishment to even make it to state.

Congratulations to team members Monica Alden, Cale Canter Jerod Crockett, Jed Chew, Jonah Dixon, Noah Dixon, Abbi Donelson, Nicole Fielder, Clay Fugate, David Fugate, Stephen Goodlett, Young Koh, David Lee, Shawn Murphy, Joseph Oaks and Amanda Settles.
