FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: April 24, 2018

The 2018 KHSAA State Archery Championships get underway Thursday morning at the Kentucky Basketball Academy in Lexington, with the first of six flights starting at 9:30 a.m. The last flight of the day is set for 2:30 p.m., with awards presentations tentatively scheduled for 3:30 p.m.

This year’s state Archery Championship will be the first to award a girls’ team championship, following action taken by the Board of Control in January. The event was previously treated as a coed sport-activity with one overall team championship awarded. Team trophies will be presented to the top four boys’ and top four girls’ teams at this year’s event, with medallions presented to the top five individuals for each gender.

In 2017, Madison Central posted a team score of 3,442 to edge state runner-up Lafayette by two points (3,440) and repeat as state champions. Model’s Joshua Smith captured the boys’ individual state championship with a 298 (with 28 10’s), while Bethlehem’s Kristen Sedlatschek took home the girls’ state title with a 294 (with 25 10’s).
