65 schools to compete in archery in the schools state tournament


Students from 65 schools will participate in the 18th annual West Virginia Archery in the Schools State Tournament on March 25, the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources announced on Thursday.

“We came back really strong last year with our first tournament after the pandemic, so we wanted to go bigger and better this year by having a larger space at the Charleston Coliseum and Convention Center and inviting more teams to compete,” said Chris Scraggs, AIS Program Coordinator.

More than 1,400 students from 96 schools participated in the state qualifier this year, but only the top 10 teams and the top 15 boys and top 15 girls from elementary, middle and high school will go on to compete at the state tournament.
