STATEHOUSE (April 18, 2017) State Rep. Ron Bacon (R-Chandler) recently recognized the Castle High School archery team at the Statehouse for placing first at the National Archery in the Schools Program State Tournament.

Castle offers the club sport to students in junior high and high school. According to Bacon, the Castle High School Archery Team has won 10 out of the 11 state titles.

“The Knights were up against 29 other Hoosier schools, and kept the winning tradition alive by bringing home another win for our community,” Bacon said. “The team hit the bullseye last year when they finished third at nationals. I wish them the best of luck as they head to Louisville next month for this year’s national competition.”

Bacon said archery is a co-ed sport, requiring each team to have four members of the opposite gender to compete. Participants shoot three rounds of five arrows from a compound bow from the 10 and 15 meter lines.
