Archers from area schools place high in Region 8 tournament


The final scores from last Saturday’s Arkansas National Archery in the Schools regional tournaments have been verified, and 100 teams are ready to advance to the ANASP State Championship in Hot Springs April 1-2.

Each regional tournament hosted students from elementary schools, middle schools and high schools throughout the day, and the top three teams from each division will move on to the state championship at Bank of the Ozarks Arena in Hot Springs.

One team from each school that hosted a regional qualifier also will get an at-large bid to the state championship, setting the total state championship field at 100 teams. The popularity of the program was evident during Saturday’s shoot, when the scoring system began experiencing problems due to increased traffic.

The following are the results of the 2016 Region 8 Tournament held at the Delight Gym:
