VIDEO – Kerra Johnson Discusses Senior Season Expectations


Kerra Johnson faces the normal stresses of a senior and a senior-athlete.

Shooting with the Trigg County Arrowcats program since the fifth grade, Johnson knows the ins and outs of archery and the sometimes lofty expectations as progress is measured with scores each time out.

“You get a little more stressed as you get older because you think your scores should go up and you have that expectation for yourself,” Johnson said.

One factor that Johnson thought would add stress to her routine hasn’t. Her father Adam is one of her coaches and watches her every shot.

“I thought it would definitely add stress but it hasn’t. I’ve loved it. Anytime I need something he’s always the first person I go to. It’s convenient having him watch me and tell me what I did wrong, but he’s always the first hug when I’m finished,” she said.

With the Arrowcats now settled into its new home on campus, Johnson said the practice times are better. It allows the upperclassmen to practice with the elementary and middle school kids, allowing mentorships and new bonds to form.

On Saturday, Johnson shot a 258 at the Murray Tiger Shootout, placing 19th. She hopes to get her score back into the 270s as the Arrowcats prepare for KHSAA and NASP region and state competition.

Johnson discussed her expectations and future aspirations in this YSE interview.
