The 2015 KHSAA Archery State Championship will be held Thursday, April 23rd at the Kentucky Basketball Academy in Lexington.

In other action taken on Wednesday, the Board of Control:

• Accepted a recommendation from staff to modify the field size requirements for hosting regional soccer tournaments. Following the Board’s acceptance, the minimum field width requirement to host a regional soccer tournament will be reduced to a range of 60-to-80 yards (the previous required range was 65-to-80 yards wide).

• Approved a policy recommendation banning the use of drones at KHSAA events. Until additional regulations are adopted by the FAA, the KHSAA shall operate congruently with the FAA regulations on model aircraft as of August 20, 2010, irrespective of a facility’s seating capacity (TFR 14 CFR 91.145 and Special Notes FDC 9/5151), and not allow the use of drones for any reason at KHSAA sanctioned events.

• Continued discussion of a realignment in swimming, and will review the matter at a future meeting following further examination by KHSAA staff into regional availability of suitable host facilities for regional championship meets.
