The top 4 team scores from the tournament were 1st-Martin 3,212, 2nd-Kennedale-3,014, 3rd-Arlington Bowie-2,891, 4th-Arlington High-2637.
This breaks the previous Kennedale team total by 225 points. This was a ?qualifying? tournament, one in which the scores are used to determine who gets to compete at the state meet in March and hopefully the scores earned Friday night will give the team enough to qualify for that meeting.

According to team coach Wilcox that score would have placed KHS team 11th in the state last year. Allen won the state tournament with 3,280 points. Kennedale is in its first year of competition having just started the program last year.

The team total was based on the top 12 scores on Friday. There is still another opportunity to shoot a qualifying round on December 15 and all team members have another chance to improve on their recorded scores.

Some of the scores and KHS shooters Friday night included Masner-278, Dixon-263, Peppel-255, DeCluette-252, Bossaller-247, Warren-247, Brock-238, Murchison-233, Stites-228, G.

Team sponsor Danny Wilcox tweeted out ?Congrats to the KHS ACE Archery Team! Made history again tonight with a top 12 team score of 3,014 points! Improved 245 points to break 3K!?
The State Tournament will be held March 31st and April 1st in Belton, Texas at the Expo Center.
