The CCHS Academic Team has had a very successful beginning to the academic competition season, competing in two large tournaments facing top teams from Kentucky and surrounding states. Thirty-two teams, including the top 8 teams from last year’s KY Governor’s Cup, competed in the Glasgow Scottie Tournament on August 30, with the CCHS varsity team compiling a record of 7-3, good for 9th place. In September, 48 teams participated in the Ezell-Harding Tournament in Nashville, with the CCHS varsity compiling a record of 7-1, including a win over DuPont Manual’s top team. The Camels ranked in 5th place overall, which qualified them for a spot in the National Championship NAQT Tournament in Dallas in May. The team record overall at this point in the season is 16 wins and 4 losses, with only one loss coming to a team from Kentucky. The Varsity team is comprised of captain Carly Taylor, Colton Graham, Mitchell Turner, Hayden Hiller, Kyle Houston and Kevin Korth.
