The Edmonson County High School Archery team has excelled once again and has qualified for the NASP World Tournament for the second year in a row after a strong finish in the NASP National Tournament this past Friday in Louisville.
The team finished with a final ranking of 62 out of 248 schools across the nation, landing in the top 25% of all teams. Head Coach Chris Shelton says the team continues to raise the bar of success with each tournament.
"They just blew this one out of the water," he said. "They just keep on. They continue to take these big jumps and it's amazing."
The team finished an all-time high score of 3330 points while competing in the prestigious tournament held at the KY Expo Center. Senior Nate Wilson set both a new team high score and individual high score while senior Bailey Burba, Katie Vincent, Adri Ray, and Jarrod Sanders also help lead the team to new heights.
The team has qualified to compete in the World Tournament this summer in Orlando, Florida, but coach Shelton is unsure for now whether or not they can make the event.
"We're looking at the logistics of the situation. The cost will be huge and while we want our kids to experience this, we have to see if it's feasible to do so for only one tournament. It's been a great year, we've got great kids, and they've done some amazing things."
