KHSAA to offer Archery as a girls sport

The KHSAA Board of Control approved on Thursday a proposal to create a new championship opportunity for girls in the sport of Archery. Previously, Archery was conducted as a coed sport and awarded one overall team championship. The regional and state competitions will now award separate team championships for coed and all-girls divisions.

The board will receive a final outline of the timeline and structure for the State Archery Championship next month. This year’s Archery State Championships will be held April 26 at the Kentucky Basketball Academy in Lexington.
