Olympic aim

Klamath Falls, Ore. – When you tune in to the Olympics on NBC in a few years, there’s a good chance you’ll be seeing a young woman from Klamath County.

12 year old Kaileigh Ranson caught the archery bug early.

And now, she’s set her sights on a bigger target.

“My goal is to get a scholarship to college on archery,” Says Ranson. “And then after that, go to the Olympics.”

Ranson has already won some major competitions. “I won the state triple crown, first place, second place, and third place in a couple local tournaments, and one national title.”

President Kelly Crewse of the Kingsley Bowmen, a Klamath Falls archery group, believes there’s a good chance Kaileigh can reach the Olympics if she stays on target. “I think it’s very good if she keeps working hard at what she’s doing.”

You can meet Kaileigh Ranson and more than 200 other archers March 4th and 5th at the Klamath County Fairgrounds.

The Kingsley Bowmen are hosting their ‘Supershoot’, with competition getting underway at 8:30 Saturday and Sunday mornings.
