Young shooters flock to State Fair Park for competitive archery finale

Today 1,132 students from about 88 Oklahoma schools competed in the Oklahoma National Archery in the Schools State Shoot.

The competition was held at the Oklahoma State Fair Park in Oklahoma City.  The event brought students together after a season of practice and competition in their respective schools as part of the Oklahoma National Archery in the Schools Program (OKNASP), administered by the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation.

The first place teams for the elementary, middle and high school categories were Chickasha Elementary, Macarthur Middle School and Chickasha High School.

To help manage the sheer number of students participating in this growing program (about 310 schools statewide participate in the program), the Wildlife Department held regional shoots across the state to establish which teams and individual shooters would qualify for the state shoot.

Teachers interested in learning more about the OKNASP program or in starting the program at their school should contact Justin Marschall, OKNASP coordinator for the Wildlife Department, at (405) 522-4572 or jmarschall@odwc.state.ok.us or contact Colin Berg, information and education supervisor for the Wildlife Department, at (918) 299-2334 or cberg02@sbcglobal.net.

Coordinated by the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation, OKNASP is part of the National Archery in the Schools program. The program partners state wildlife agencies, schools and the nation's archery industry to introduce students to the sport of archery. The Archery in the Schools curriculum is designed for 4th-12th graders and covers archery history, safety, techniques, equipment, mental concentration and self-improvement.
