“All of our archers did a great job at the NASP STATE TOURNAMENT and we are very proud of them but those three archers finished in the top 25,” explained Coach Shelton
In the team categories, Monticello Elementary finished 23rd out of 32 teams. Wayne County Middle School finished 68th out of 101 teams. Wayne County High School finished 49th out of 115 teams.

Their season started in January and will conclude in April. Their next competition will be nationals. It will be shot virtually at their home range on campus. Then the final event will be for the high school archers through the KHSAA in April.
