The archers hit their bullseyes again at the Central Valley competition last weekend.
Starting off February right on target, the high school archery team took second place February 1, which means the team is another arrow closer to competing at states in March.
In fact, the next competition for the archery team will be at Portersville in Butler County February 15.
“I joined [the team] last year,” stated freshman Sarah Foltz, “and I can definitely see improvements from last year. One, I’m growing as an archer myself, and as a team we are placing first or second in every competition we go to.”
Did you know that the archers get up at 6 a.m. every morning to practice their skills? For a lot of us that’s impossible—but that dedication is part of the team’s winning attitude.
“We won our second tournament in New Brighton where we got custom-made trophies,” said junior Connor Stewart. “I thought the trophies were cool, but I’m most excited to see where this team goes in the upcoming years and in the upcoming competitions.”
“Taking second place at Central Valley humbled the team,” explained coach Russ Sabo. “The team is practicing for Portersville next weekend; then we will be off to states in March.”
Congratulations to this year’s archery team! Keep improving, keep letting arrows fly, but most importantly, keep having fun.
