Sports round up


Band wins second in state
The Adair County band finished up their season last weekend after making the trip to Warren County High School. The band had to first get through the semifinals before moving on to the championship that night. Advance the team did, moving into the finals where they gave their signature performance, “Triplicity.”

The team came home with the title of second place overall for the KMEA State Finals in class 3A. There were a total of 12 teams that competed in class 3A all with great talent and ability. Band Director Jordan Humphress commented on the performance of the group this season, “from beginning to end the students pushed for an enjoyable atmosphere that allowed for success and memories that will stay with them throughout life. I’m very proud of the group and honored to have witnessed the leadership by our four seniors this season.”

ACMS basketball goes against Metcalfe and Taylor
The Adair County Middle School boys’ basketball team hosted Metcalfe County in their second game of the season last week where they were able to walk away with two out of three wins from the games.

The momentum from the first match and win against Cumberland has kept the team rolling through. The sixth graders were able to secure the win against Metcalfe 34-11. The seventh graders were just as confident and scored their win with a final score of 54-22. The momentum started to slow down leading to the first loss of the season for the eighth-grade boys with a final score of 28-33 with the win for Metcalfe.

The team also traveled to Taylor County on Tuesday for their third match up where they had another two out of three wins. Sixth grade won 17-13, seventh grade won 36-33 and eighth grade took a loss with a final score of 13-40.

The boys are just getting started this year and will have their fourth game of the season when they go up against Glasgow tonight at home at 5 p.m.
