Sights aimed high

News

Sights were set high in Sullivan today as high school, middle and elementary students competed in an archery competition.

This is the first year the archery program was brought to Sullivan. Today was also a fundraiser to help keep the program running. Students practice 2 hours, 3 nights a week for the competition which could lead them to the state tournament in Indianapolis come March.

“It puts a lot of pressure on you, but yeah i can handle it,” Emma Garrett Sullivan middle schooler said.

“I think it’s just so important because it’s based just around anybody, it teaches them leadership and it’s basically teaching them skills that they’re going to use their whole life,” Alex Grable, Sullivan elementary coach said.

Coach Grable tells us the archery program also offers plenty of scholarships for students.
