Caudill first, Central second in state archery tournaments

LOUISVILLE — B. Michael Caudill Middle School captured first place in its division at the 2014 National Archery in the Schools Kentucky state championship March 17-18 in Louisville

Madison Central High School placed second in its division.

The championship featured more participants than ever, according to the organizers.

“A record 4,172 student archers competed in the tournament,” said Patrick O’Connell, state NASP coordinator for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. “Last year, which was our previous record, we had 4,093 students compete. In addition to that, for the first time, we went over 10,000 archers across Kentucky completing at our regional qualifying tournaments.”

Elementary, middle and high school students competed for individual and team awards. It was the 13th state tournament conducted in Kentucky since the program began in 2001.

After practice rounds, each competitor shot 15 arrows from 10 meters and 15 arrows from 15 meters, for a total possible score of 300 points. Competitors shot additional rounds to break any ties.

Archery is a Kentucky High School Athletic Association sport activity so the top five high school boys and girls and top three teams received KHSAA state championship awards.

The top finishers in the team and individual standings qualify for the 2014 NASP Nationals, scheduled for May at the Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center in Louisville.
