Congratulations to our academic team on a fantastic Governor’s Cup District Competition last Saturday! Owensboro High School hosted the local schools, and won first place overall for the second consecutive year, with an astounding 73 points- almost doubling Daviess County (second place)!!! They also placed first in quick recall, a team-based contest similar to quiz-bowl, as well as second in future problem-solving.
