Over 30 students and staff from Pikeville Independent participated, coached, scored, proctored and cheered at the 28th Annual Governor’s Cup Academic Competition held in Louisville on March 15-17. This year marks the 28th year that Pikeville Junior/High School has been represented at the tournament.
Both the junior high and high school teams competed in multiple fields including a single elimination Quick Recall Tournament (and we do mean Quick), individual subject testing, Individual Future Problem Solving and On-Demand Written Composition.
In the high school division, Krishna Ammisetty placed second and Blaine McNulty place fifth in written composition and Ammad Mansoor placed eighth in social studies. The Quick Recall Team advanced out of pool play and finished the tournament as semi-finalists. The high school team finished sixth place overall in the tournament.
The team coaches for the high school team are Tom Asbury, Bennett Stewart and Dawn Stewart. The high school coaches would like to say farewell to this year’s seniors, Alex Malone, Patrick Cordero and Krishna Ammisetty and “May the wind always be at your backs.”
