Local Students Compete in State NASP Archery Tournament

Students from Meigs Middle School, Elliott Point Elementary, and Shalimar Elementary competed in a NASP "Virtual" State Archery Tournament on Saturday, February 14th.  The tournament was held in the Meigs Middle School gymnasium. 

National Archery in Schools Program (NASP) is being implemented in several Okaloosa County Schools this year.  The Okaloosa County School District provided funding to schools with certified coaches to purchase equipment.  Since the program is so new to many of the schools, only three schools were able to get teams together in time for the Tournament.

Results for the Okaloosa County teams are as follows:

Meigs Middle School - Ranked 7th out of 14 teams.  Top scoring archers were Luke Atkins and Leah Price.  Price is ranked 1st out of 137 middle school girls.

Elliott Point Elementary - Ranked 5th out of 9 teams.  Top scoring archers were Zeke Oswald and Mia Thomas.

Shalimar Elementary JV - Ranked 7th out of 9 teams.  Top scoring archers were Calypsa Coarsey and Morgan Nowell.

Shalimar Elementary Varsity - Ranked 2nd out of 9 teams.  Top scoring archers were Ti Bowser and Aubrey Scamahorn.  Bowser is ranked 10th overall elementary boys and Scamahorn is ranked 3rd overall elementary girls.

National Qualifiers who have the opportunity to go to the National Tournament in Louisville, Kentucky in May are as follows:

Leah Price - Meigs Middle School
Aubrey Scamahorn - Shalimar Elementary
Ti Bowser - Shalimar Elementary
Candace Tras - Shalimar Elementary
Alyssa Cooper - Shalimar Elementary
