Archers in NASP tournament

A line of archers focus on their targets in the 2018 National Archery in the Schools Tournament at Speedway Sporting Village. The 2019 event, the 14th in Nebraska, saw a record 40 schools from across the state participate on March 23 with 780 archers in grades 4-12.

Katheryn Rice of Cornerstone Christian in Bellevue set a state record high score for females in the National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) state tournament March 23 at Speedway Sporting Village in Lincoln.

Rice scored 289 out of a possible 300 points for the highest score of the meet. Her score broke the all-time female mark by one point set by two girls in 2018.

The high male score of the tournament was a 288 by Lincoln East’s David Lynch.

The 2019 event, the 14th in Nebraska, saw a record 40 schools participate with 780 archers. Archers shot 15 arrows at targets from 10 meters and 15 arrows from 15 meters.

NASP is an in-school curriculum covering target archery for students in grades 4-12. In Nebraska, more than 280 schools have NASP as part of their physical education curriculum, and nearly 35,000 students participate each school year. The state tournament is the largest archery event in Nebraska.
