Coach Phillip Wasson and Liz Clements started talking last year about a new archery team for Washington School. They realized it was a very fast-growing sport in the state and in the nation. So, Washington’s very own Debbie Harris, Liz Clements, Ryan Chun and Phillip Wasson got certified by the National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) and the plans went underway.

Mrs. Clements said she plans to begin practice after November.

“We need to have a meeting on rules and then after that just wait for the equipment,” she said.

The reason they decided to start this team was mainly because we live in the Delta and many people like to shoot.

The team is open to students in fourth to 12th grades; Wasson and Clements plan to host two qualifying tournaments before the state championship in April.

Mrs. Clements said the archery team can be another outlet for kids here at Washington.

“Kids who don’t like other sports can now get involved,” she said. “It also helps kids with focus and patience. It’s something you can do all your life.”
