For the first time in history an academic team from Clinton County is a regional champion! On Saturday, February 2nd, the Clinton County Middle School academic team traveled to Pulaski County to compete in regional Governor’s Cup competition. After a long day of matches, Clinton County emerged as the Quick Recall Regional Tournament champions. This achievement tops an undefeated season for the CCMS Academic Team, who did not lose a match during the Lake Cumberland Academic League held in October—December. They were also undefeated in both District and Regional Governor’s Cup competition. Two students from Clinton County also receive individual honors for written assessment. Loren Little placed 1st in Language Arts and Evan Little placed 1st in Arts & Humanities. The entire academic team, as well as those students receiving individual honors, will now advance to State Governor’s Cup competition to be held in Louisville on March 16-18.
