APS Teams Hit the Mark in Archery Competition
Five APS schools among divisional winners at NASP event.
Teams representing five Albuquerque public schools placed in last month’s National Archery in the Schools Program state tournament, including two first-place winners.
Ernie Pyle Middle School finished at the top of the standings in the middle school division, while Seven Bar Elementary won the elementary division title. Pajarito Elementary came in third in that division.
Rio Grande High School finished in second place and Early College Academy took third in the high school division.
Some 500 students competed in the state event, which is sponsored by the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish. To be eligible, schools must include the NASP curriculum for a minimum of two weeks of class time. Game and Fish helps schools purchase equipment and provides training and certification for coaches. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service includes NASP within the programs that qualify for federal funding.
