Local Archery Team Scores Bull’s-Eye

Several years ago, Mark Phillips, physical education teacher at Mead’s Evergreen Elementary school, discovered a unique way to get kids active. Think Robin Hood and William Tell. That’s right; Phillips introduced archery to his fifth- and sixth-grade students. He’d heard about the National Archery in the Schools Program and was intrigued. “Archery is one of those things that every single kid can participate in,” said Phillips. ... Students enthusiastically embraced the program and Phillips soon formed an after-school archery team. On March 20, the Evergreen Mustangs won first place in the elementary division in the statewide competition/Cindy Hval, Washington Voices. More here. (SR file photo for illustration: Jesse Tinsley)

Question: Have you ever shot a bow-and-arrow? Are/were you good at it?
