APA archers advance to national meet

ANDERSON, Ind. — A team of 24 archers from Anderson Preparatory Academy competed in the National Archery in the Schools state tournament and came away with a sixth-place finish among 20 teams.

What’s more, the Jets’ score of 3,216 was well above the 3,050 needed to qualify to compete May 10 in the national competition in Louisville.

“They take the top 12 scores for the team total,” said APA coach Patrick Yahner. “They take the top-four females and the top-eight males. They then add those scores together for the team total. That was our best score of the season.”

The Jets’ top score was a 276 from freshman female Cheyenne Morgan. Others to crack the 270 total were freshman Nathan Carrell (271), senior James Chastain (274), freshman Ian Evans (274), eighth-grader Caleb Overstreet (274) and freshman James Wilken (273).

“With the meets held during the season, we had been averaging 3,150,” said Yahner. “So I had a feeling we would do pretty well.”

There were 1,062 archers at the state competition, which was held at the Horizon Convention Center in Muncie.

“Four years ago when we went, we just had 16 archers,” said Yahner. “This year we had 44 students participate. I don’t know if maybe the character in the movie ‘The Hunger Games’ might have stirred some interest among the girls.”

The team right now is finishing a brief resting period. Beginning today, the students will resume practice for the national event. A good score there would vault the team into the world competition, which will be held on June 28 in St. Louis.

  • SPT - HB0726 - Mathis - Colts Camp day two 101 Mathis getting lighter workload as Colts get creative

    Robert Mathis is caught in an interesting predicament. The veteran outside linebacker finds himself preparing as hard as he can to play a football season that he will watch for the first month on television. That's the result of a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's performance-enhancing drug policy, and it means fans will see less of the league's reigning sack champion on the practice field.

The former second-round pick was running out of chances when the Indianapolis Colts signed him during the 2012 season. Eleven starts and eight interceptions later, he’s ingrained as the team’s slot cornerback — working under the final season of a two-year, $4 million deal.
