The 14th Region Governor’s Cup Academic meet was scheduled to take place Saturday morning at Jackson County High School, but mother nature put a kink in those plans. After a four-hour weather delay, the quick recall event was the only event held on Saturday with the written assessment portion being completed Monday evening. On Saturday, the Jackson City Tigers defeated Perry Central, June Buchannan, Hazard, and Letcher Central to become the 2019 Quick Recall champions. Members of the Quick Recall team are: Slayde Sizemore, Ryland Gross, Halley Turner, Jackson Gay, Shelby Large, Brandon Large, Jenna Dunaway, Carson Watts, and Hylton Sizemore. Monday evening students from the 16 schools gathered at Jackson County High School to take multiple-choice exams in Math, Science, Social Studies, Language Arts, or Arts/ Humanities. Jackson City had 11 students who advanced from district competition to compete in regional competition. Results are as follows: In Science, Ryland Gross placed 1st; in Social Studies, Evan O’Neill placed 1st and Jackson Gay placed 2nd; in Language Arts, Hylton Sizemore placed 1st, Halley Turner placed 2nd; in Arts/Humanities, Slayde Sizemore placed 1st, Shelby Large placed 2nd, and Halley Turner placed 4th. In the writing composition portion of the competition, Cameron Snowden placed 3rd. Jackson City ended up earning 45 team points to put them in first place overall, Letcher County placed 2nd with 18.5 team points, and Estill County placed 3rd with 13 team points. Congratulation to the Jackson City Tigers for earning the title of 14th Region Champions for the second straight year! Good luck at State Governor’s Cup in Louisville, March 16-18, 2019!
