Thompson edges older teammate Wayne for state archery title

Henry Thompson was just wanting to make sure he didn’t mess up.

Chance Wayne admits he was shaking.

But when all the scores were tabulated, Thompson, a seventh-grader, and Wayne, a senior, had taken the top two spaces in the KHSAA state archery tournament last Thursday at the Kentucky Basketball Academy in Lexington.

By a matter of inches, Thompson won the state championship in his first state tournament. Wayne finished second in his last.
