Harrison County archers finished their season with a recent trip to the National Archery in the Schools Program National Tournament in Louisville. Their presence at the national invitation-only tournament was based on their scores compiled at the state competition held back in March. Over 3,000 archers competed in the two-day event and it included archery programs from 30 states. It was the largest ever archery tournament in the nation.
In the elementary division, 6th grader Justin Barnes led Harrison County to a 14th place finish nationally. His score of 274 was only ten points away from a national title. Harrison Countys only other top 50 performer was 8th grader Charles Landsberg who placed 35th in the middle school division.
The middle and high school archery teams concluded the season with their end of the year banquet which recognized individuals for their performances throughout the year. The 6th grade MVP awards went to Julia Landsberg and Justin Barnes. 7th/8th grade MVP awards went to Brooke Darnell and Keith Northcutt. High School MVP awards went to Courtney Moore and Kyle Migneault.
Other awards included: Middle School Coachs award to Samantha Decker and Dakota Towles; Most Improved to Morgan Eden, Deborah Mcnees, Casey Hardin, and Daniel Lemons.
