The archery teams from Startown Elementary School and Maiden Middle School as well as individual archers from Balls Creek, Mill Creek, Maiden High, and Sherrills Ford schools competed in the National Archery in Schools tournament May 12th-14th at the Kentucky Expo and Convention Center, Louisville, Kentucky.

Teams from 31 states were involved; and they competed in three divisions and in different types of competition. There were 5,100 3D shooters--129 high school teams, 123 middle school teams, and 129 elementary school teams (449 total schools). For anyone who doesn't know, 3D archery is when archers shoot at a three-dimensional target (usually foam) that looks like an animal. There were 11,750 bullseye shooters--129 HS teams, 208 MS teams, 129 ES teams (748 total schools). There were 2,000 Centershot shooters and 1,000 Centershot 3D shooters.

Just getting invited was a major honor. This is the largest archery tournament in the world and only the top 20 percent of NASP teams make it to the nationals.

The Startown Elementary team took 3rd place in 3D, 21st place in Bullseye, and 8th place in Center Shot.

The Maiden Middle School team took 54th place in Bullseye and 6th place in Center Shot.
