Nearly 50 youth archers, ages 8-20, participated in the Junior Olympic Archer Development Club (JOAD) Summer Kick-Off Tournament held recently sponsored by Chesterfield Golden Arrow Archers (CGAA). James Hagen Jessee came in first in the Basic Compound Bowman Male division with a total score of 391 points. Several members of his family attended the tournament, including his brother Eric Christopher, who was very proud of his brother’s accomplishment but also very happy himself as he was celebrating his 13th birthday.
James is the son of Eric C. and Jennifer Harrington Jessee; grandson of Linda and Clyde Jessee; great grandson of Victoria Grubb and D.J. Harrington and Margaret Withers and Clarence W. Ashbrook.
Standing on the podium with James is second-place winner Jeremy Turner (332) and third-place winner Maddox McMillian (243).
