It was a big weekend for the Mercery Archery team as the high school, middle and intermediate schools competed this Saturday, April 2, in the NASP Bullseye and NASP/IBO state competitions.

In the Archery’s programs fourth year, the high school team made it for NASP State for the second time, King Middle and Mercer Intermediate competed at state for the first time.

The young Titans did very well competing against 15-year programs in such a large atmosphere. King Middle scored a new team high score for the program with 3208 points in the State NASP Bullseye Tournament.

Coach Eric Miller is proud of his group and sees a bright future for Mercer Archery. “I couldn’t be more pleased with our teams performance at state this year,” said Miller. “All the teams showed confidence and determination and I couldn’t be more proud of our kids.”

On Thursday, April 20, Isaac Rogers will compete for the KHSAA State Individual Championships at the KBA Center in Lexington. Rogers was the first regional champion for Mercer Archery and had really taken the program to new heights.

Miller said the team is waiting patiently for nationwide results to see if they will qualify for NASP Nationals, which will be held in Louisville.
