LEXINGTON – The 2016 KHSAA State Archery Championship is slated to start Thursday morning at the Kentucky Basketball Academy in Lexington. The competition begins at 9 a.m. with the first of six hour-long flights. The four teams with the highest overall scores across the opening flights will advance to the championship round, scheduled for 3:30 p.m., followed by an awards presentation for the top four teams and the top eight individuals.
Last year, Trigg County’s Clay Stevens became the first student-athlete to post a perfect score of 300 at the state championship en route to capturing the 2015 individual state title. Stevens’ performance helped Trigg County claim its third-consecutive team championship. The Wildcats finished with a total score of 4,507 points during the championship round, followed by Madison Central (4,484), Anderson County (4,466) and Letcher County Central (4,463).
