Georgetown Middle School recently started offering The Archery in Schools program to students.
The Archery in Schools program is a national program supported by the S.C. Department of Natural Resources. It teaches international style archery techniques and helps to promote discipline, covers archery history, safety, technique, equipment, mental concentration, and self-improvement.
Teams and individuals can qualify for area, state, regional and national competitions.
Today, the Archery Team is coached by Larry Holladay and Juston Johnson and meets after school on Thursdays and sometimes practices on Saturday mornings.
Since the inception of the Archery Club and the Georgetown Archery Team have qualified each year for both the state tournament in Columbia and the national tournament in Louisville, Ky.
As the success and popularity of the archery program have grown, an Archery Booster Club was created to help students find sponsors to provide quality experiences and opportunities.
This year, two high school students and 23 middle school students qualified for the state and national tournament.
The middle school team placed third in the state and Pierce James placed second.
In the high school division, Kyle Brandon placed second and Kaitlin Gibson placed third.
For more information on volunteer or sponsorship opportunities, contact Holladay or Johnson at 527-4495.
