Arrow Jackets place second in Bourbon Co.
The Woodford County High School archery team placed second at last Saturday’s Bourbon County Classic, giving the team some momentum as it gets set to compete in a state qualifying tournament at Lexington Christian Academy. The Arrow Jackets’ placed second in a field of three, placing behind Frederick Douglass High School’s A-Team but ahead of the Broncos’ B-Team. WCHS Junior Shaun Lavin was the top scorer for Woodford County. His 285 points were the most by any high school boy. Lavin’s effort was only bested by an eighth grader from Harrison County Middle School, Taylor Conway, who scored a tournament-high 24 bullseyes. Devon Wilson, a WCHS senior, finished just three points behind Lavin, placing fourth among high school boys with a score of 282. WCHS junior Caleb Rockhold finished three points behind Wilson for fifth. Woodford County’s highest girl finisher was Anemone Rishel. The Yellow Jacket junior finished eighth among high school girls with a score of 275. Brianne Lacefield, a sophomore, also finished in the top 10 for the Jackets, placing 10th with a score of 271. The Arrow Jackets have been successful in the classroom as well. Eighteen of Woodford County’s archers who competed Saturday are what the National Archery in Schools Program considers “Academic Archers.” The Jackets compete Saturday at the LCA Eagle Classic. The first flights begin at 8:30 a.m.
