“I thought we shot well for the first shoot of the year,” said coach Justin Williams. “Last year we shot a 2700 as a team, this year we shot a 3035.”

The tournament involves shooting for an hour.  Archers shoot three sets from 10 meters, then three sets from the 15-meter mark. Freshman Jordan Zarbano was the highest scoring archer for the boys on the Atlantic archery team. Sophomore Heather Freund was the highest scoring Atlantic shooter for the girls.
