Blevins Elementary and Middle School Archery Teams competed in the Arkansas National Archery in the Schools Program Tournament this past weekend in Hot Springs and qualified for the national archery tournament to be held in Louisville, Kentucky the weekend of May 8-10. The elementary team qualified and competed last year in the national and world tournaments. This is the first year for the middle school team to qualify.
Sixth grader Michele Couch was the highest elementary girl shooter in the state tournament. Michele scored 276 out of a possible 300 points and led all girls through the team shooting. After a shoot off, Michele finished in fourth place in the state tournament.
The archers will be involved in fund raisers to assist with trip expenses. Donations will be gladly accepted and appreciated. For more information contact Coach Claudette Harris at Blevins Elementary School at 870-874-2283.
