November 27-- The Vidalia Heritage Academy Archery teams competed in their first NASP District tournament of the season on November 11, at Jones County High School.   The VHA Elementary and Middle School teams won first place, and two Eagle archers were the top individual shooters of the tournament. The Elementary archers shot a team score of 2048 to win first place in that division. Ivy Kate Gilliam scored a 254 as the top Elementary archer, Jackson Wilson shot a 233 as the top male Elementary shooter, and Mallory Johnson scored a 226 to finish 2nd among all Elementary females.

The Heritage Middle School team also won first place, shooting a 2893 team score, and 7th grader - Julia Beacham was the Top Female shooter of the entire tournament with a score of 281 (out of a possible 300). Josey Harrell placed 2nd among females with a 258, Austin Wynns shot a 264 as the top Middle School Male archer, while Jeffery Mosley scored 260 as the 2nd male archer .

The VHA high school team did not have enough archers to qualify and score as a team, but Elliot Sammons shot a 285 (his personal best score) to win the title of Tournament Top Shooter. Whit Sikes placed 4th among high school males with a 267, Macy Todd and Mikela O’Neal both shot 259 to place 4th and 5th among all high school females.

This was the first tournament of the season for Heritage Archery and for several of the younger archers, this was their very first archery competition. So, it was a great learning experience for the rookies and another opportunity for the veteran archers to continue to improve, as they will all work hard throughout the season to compete at the District and Region tournaments, and to return to the NASP State Tournament.
