Lions win Regional Archery title, advance to nationals

• Archers seeking community support for travel expenses to Louisville event

Posted

FOLEY, Ala. — The Foley High School Archery team placed first in their regional tournament in mid-March and qualified to compete at the Alabama National Archery in Schools (NASP) State Tournament on April 7. There the Lions shot a score of 3248 at state to qualify for the NASP National Tournament in Louisville, Ky.

The team will now compete with 15,000 other students from all over the United States and hope to qualify for a spot at the NASP World Tournament in July. The team will shoot on Saturday, May 13 at 8:30 a.m.

The team has about three weeks to raise the money to travel to Louisville. Since archery is not part of the AHSAA and does not receive funding from the school, students are responsible for paying for tournaments on their own. Students are raising money for hotels, charter bus, and shooting fees. Students have several fundraisers planned and are trying to raise $10,000.

The team is made up of students from Foley High and Foley Middle. Members of the team are Caleb Hooper, Corey Parker, Peyton Brokowsky, Denver Wolff, Curtis Weeks, Zayn Hall, Rodrigo Dorry, Dalton Anderson, Raven Pope, Lenox Clark, Kalee Hinson, Bri Watters, Amie Taylor, Morgan Price, Breanna Atkinson, Erin Boutwell, Dalton Day, Kaleb Barker, Thomas Michael, Aylssa Moore, Tyler Roberts, Katherine Michael, Luke Michael, Abbie Bosch and Darren Williamson. Coaches are Shea Hinson and Tim Boutwell.
