SD archery takes home champion bucket

GREENSBURG – Middle school archers from Greensburg, North Decatur and South Decatur gathered at Greensburg Junior High School last month for the first annual Decatur County Archery “Bucket” meet.

All middle school archers from the three schools competed to see who would take home the trophy – and bragging rights for the next year.

Cougar archers ended up taking home bucket trophy with a final score of 3,263, breaking all previous meet records for the team. Top shooters were Zach Ferris, with a 286; Shelby Blaich with a 282; and Karah Biddinger with a 279.

North Decatur’s team shot a 2892, with a team of only 10 shooters. According to Tom Stricker, owner of Cutting Edge Sporting Goods and co-coach of Greensburg’s archery team, said the overall scores were averaged to account for the two missing archers. Greensburg shot a 3255, breaking their previous team score record, a feat coaches, parents and archers were thrilled to accomplish.

Coaches seemed to be proud of all the teams, regardless of which school they are a member.

“North Decatur didn’t even have a full team, so the score they shot was just amazing,” said Stricker. “South and Greensburg both shot higher than they ever have. It was great.”

SD coaches Kevin Doyle and Julie Blaich expressed their pride in the students, telling the Daily News that the students showed great sportsmanship and represented their schools very well.

Cougar archers will be shooting at 4:50 p.m. at the State Competition at the Indiana State Fairgrounds on March 22.

Coaches and parents invite everyone to attend and support the team.
