The Ballard County Middle School academic team took first place overall in the District Governor’s Cup tournament, held at Fulton City Middle School, starting on Jan. 19. Because of bad weather, individual assessments and quick recall competition did not conclude until Jan. 26.
The quick recall team finished first, and the future problem solving team took fourth place. Several students also placed in the top five individually. The QRT and individuals will compete at regionals on Feb. 13 at McCracken County High School.
