NY Archery in Schools Tournament Winners Announced


The results of the 14th annual New York National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP®) State Tournament were released Tuesday by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. DEC hosted the tournament at the State Fairgrounds in Syracuse on March 15.

“Archery is a great way to connect people to the outdoors and grow the next generation of conservationists. DEC is thrilled to see the number of participants in the New York National Archery in the Schools Program continue to grow,” said DEC Commissioner Basil Seggos. “Congratulations to all who participated in the State Tournament, and for those archers who qualified for the National Tournament – good luck and shoot straight.”

Students and schools competed in one of three divisions: High School, grades 9-12; Middle School, grades 6-8; and Elementary School, grades 4-5. Emilia Pepe from Norwich High School was the overall top female archer in the tournament with a score of 286. Bryant Reynolds from Arkport Central School was the overall top male archer with a score of 286. Emilia and Bryant each received a trophy and a New York Champion Genesis bow with case and arrows.

The top-scoring school teams in each division were all from Richmond County: St. Joseph by the Sea High School took first place in the High School division; Michael J. Petrides School won the Middle School division; and Notre Dame Academy won the Elementary School division.

Top placing results for individual archers are listed below. Awards were also given out in each of the three divisions for first through fifth places. Students that place in the top 10 in each of the three divisions qualify to compete and represent New York State at the National NASP® Tournament in Louisville, Kentucky, each May.
