“We set a goal this year to give the kids and coaches who work so hard all year the largest tournament we have ever put on and I think we did that,” said Chris Scraggs, who coordinates the Archery in the Schools program for the WVDNR. “As always, we want to thank everyone who participated in the program this year and extend a big congratulations to all our teams and students that placed in the state tournament.”

In the weeks leading up to the tournament, more than 1,400 students from 96 schools in West Virginia participated in qualifier rounds.

“I want to congratulate the schools and students who participated in the West Virginia State Archery in the Schools tournament,” said West Virginia Department of Commerce Secretary James Bailey. “By promoting shooting sports and providing opportunities for youth to participate in activities like Archery in the Schools, we are not only instilling important skills in our young people, such as focus and discipline, but also contributing to the growth of our state’s economy. Hunting and fishing are an integral part of our state’s heritage and by fostering an interest in these activities through programs like this, we are ensuring a strong future for West Virginia.”
