Archery season is starting, and so far, the team is doing well. This year’s team has 52 members, 30 in high school, 15 in junior high, and 7 in elementary. The team shot their qualifier on Thursday, February 1. The qualifier is an archery shoot where the archers try to post their best score as an attempt to get into the Indiana State NASP Tournament held in Indianapolis, Indiana. At the qualifier, the Paoli team shared the range with West Washington for all three divisions.

“We are doing well currently. We have members shooting their highest scores currently. We have some that are working on improving their scores and making larger contributions to the team.  Our younger members are improving each outing, which is showing good signs for the future,” said archery coach Kyle Woolston.

The team traveled to Switzerland County on February 10 and are traveling to South Spencer February 16. Woolston is seeking additional competition opportunities for the team in the future.
