Nearly two dozen Cameron County School District students in grades 5 through 12 participated in a National Archery in the Schools competition at Woodland Elementary. The sport introduces participants to the lifelong sport of archery by combining physical activity with hand-eye coordination. Event organizer and Cameron County Outdoor Youth Activity (CCOYA) director Don Bickford thanked instructors Nick Keller and Ben Porkolab for their help promoting the program. Among sponsors that helped defray the expenses of this year’s program were CCOYA, May Hollow Sportsmen’s Club , Cameron County Vets Club, Emporium Moose, Cameron County Longbeards Chapter of NWTF, and Think Ink Screen-Printing. Medal winners were (from left) -- Woodland third-place archer Ian Bolin, high school champion Dylan Rieder, Woodland first-place winner Harold Bailey and Woodland second-place finisher Maddox Baughman. Not pictured are Kaelee Bresslin and Morgan Lorenzo, who finished in second and third place respectively in the high school division.
