Magnolia High School sent three high school archery athletes to Huntington to compete in the West Virginia Archery State Tournament, and came back with two athletes – senior Noah Wade and freshman Jacob Koontz – to compete in the NASP Eastern Nationals in Kentucky the week of May 9-11. Each shot a 286 out of 300 to finish eighth and ninth to qualify for the nationals. Wade scored one more bulls-eye (19) than Koontz (18) to finish eighth.

John Marshall Archery athletes Josh Baker and Kenneth Arrick took first and second with 292 and 289 scores, respectively, with Baker getting 22 bulls-eyes. Macayla London didn’t make the top 10, but finished with a solid 263 points.
