Four Schools Represent Fayette County in National Archery Tournament

archery1 300LEXINGTON, Ky. (5/14/13) – The National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) hosted its 10th annual national tournament May 9-11 at the Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center in Louisville with more than 9,400 students competing. Fayette County Public Schools was well-represented by one middle school and three high schools – the largest number of Lexington teams ever to qualify. To participate in the national contest, a co-ed team had to shoot a qualifying score at both the regional and state tournaments.

Beaumont Middle School, competing for the fourth year, placed 39th out of 158 teams in its division. The top female shooter was Gillian Bruce, who finished 211th, and the top male shooter was Paul McIntyre, who placed 88th. “What a cool experience for our young students! There were 200 targets and 400 archers in one room shooting at a time,” said coach Willow Cooper.

In the high school division, 156 teams competed. Paul Laurence Dunbar, appearing in its third straight national contest, recorded the highest score ever shot by a Fayette County archery team (3,295) and ranked 41st in the tournament. The top male shooter was senior Satya Alluri, who finished 17th overall. Erin Patrick, a junior, placed 92nd in the female division. “All the kids’ hard work this year showed in the improvement of their scores,” said coach Henry Harlamert.

Lafayette High, in its second year offering archery, finished 46th overall. The team was led by freshman Seanna Bryant, at 25th in the female division. The top male shooter, junior Mason Griffin, placed 208th. “It was great to see so many students shooting at nationals from all over the country. The sport is taking off,” said coach Jesse Peters.

The brand new Tates Creek High team placed 120th. This group was led by junior Tyler May, who was 691st in the male division. Zoe Fister, a freshman, finished 399th in the female division. “People who don’t understand archery just don’t understand how phenomenal this team has been. In less than three months, this team qualified for the Kentucky state archery tournament and the national tournament. I am so proud of them,” said coach Betty White.
