State JOAD Indoor 2004
74 archers met at the Matagorda County Fairgrounds Rodeo Arena in Bay City, to shoot it out for the State JOAD titles.

A Weekend for Records  by Tom Barker, Tourney Director

The 2004 TSAA Indoor JOAD tournament was indeed a weekend for records. The event hosted by the Matagorda County 4H Archery Project and sponsored by the Coastal Bend JOAD clubs surpassed last year's record attendance with 74 youth archers. There were 26 new state scoring records set for 30 arrow and 60 arrow rounds. Perhaps the record most people were considering was the record cold for an indoor tournament. Saturday mornings 39-degree temperature reading had only slightly moderated by the 10:30 start time in the non-climate controlled Matagorda County Rodeo arena.

New records were set in the following divisions:

RECORDS         30 arrows   60 arrows
Rachael Trafford Bowman Female Barebow   199 and 377
Joey Hardin Bowman Male Barebow   202 and 363
Clayton DeBord Bowman Male Compound   257 and 494
Lindsey McElrath Bowman Female Recurve   256 and 511
Tyler Janota Bowman Male Recurve   283 and 559
Meagan Lesak Cub Female Compound   266 and 530
Benjamin Human Cub Male Compound   275 and 545
Kat Adams Cub Female Barebow   235 and 219
Holly Heinsohn Cadet Female Compound   287 and 571
Kenny Holcomb Cadet Male Compound   283 and 559
Andrea Garner Cadet Female Recurve   261 and 518
Morgan Brooks Junior Male Compound   287 and 561
Kevin Barker Junior Male Recurve   294 and 572

Other highlights included Tyson Deck's robin hood, Morgan Brooks' silver olympian and Kevin Barker's gold olympian. Also of special note are the courageous efforts by Mallory Wallace and Joseph Human who persevered despite being on crutches.
