archery1 300FRANKFORT, Ky. (3/21/13) – The Trigg County Arrowcats swept the team competition at the 2013 National Archery in the Schools (NASP) Kentucky state championship held March 18-19 at Louisville's International Convention Center.
 
"We changed our coaching philosophy and the kids have really responded both academically and athletically," said Tom Patterson, coach of Trigg County's high school team. "We're really pleased, and we have a good group of people helping us."
 
"A record number of student archers - a total of 4,093 - participated in the tournament," said Patrick O'Connell, state NASP coordinator. "And there's still room to bring more schools into the program here in Kentucky."
 
Elementary, middle and high school students competed for individual and team awards. It was the 12th state tournament held in Kentucky since the program began in 2001.
 
Archery is now a Kentucky High School Athletic Association (KHSAA) sport activity so the top five high school boys and girls and top 3 teams received KHSAA state championship awards. "This is the first year we've sanctioned archery as a sport activity," said Mike Barren, KHSAA assistant commissioner. "We didn't want these kids to miss out on a part of the school community."
 
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.
 
The top finishers in the team and individual standings qualify for the 2013 NASP Nationals, to be held in Louisville May 10-11.
