West Virginia's annual Archery in the Schools tournament is going virtual this year and the state Division of Natural Resources is giving teams more chances to participate by extending the event and removing a qualifying round.
"The COVID-19 pandemic has created some challenges, but archery is a safe sport where you can socially distance and we wanted to make sure kids have every opportunity to shoot," said Kayla Donathan, who coordinates WVDNR's Archery in the Schools program. This year's tournament will take place from March 25-27 to allow school-based archery teams plenty of time for students to shoot competitive rounds in their own facility. West Virginia’s Archery in the School program started in 2013 with 18 pilot schools and has since grown to include more than 300 schools across the state.
