Placeholder Image
There’s only one way to describe the Eastside archery program: on target.In just its second year of competition, the Eastside Middle School archery team will take part in the NASP World Archery Tournament in Madison, Wis. The Bulldogs and Lady Bulldogs qualified for the world tournament in July when the team met a minimum score while competing in the national tournament in Louisville last month.All season, Eastside has been able to excel and outlast its opponents at tournaments. The Bulldogs and Lady Bulldogs had standout performances in local tournaments held in Sparta, Dibrell and Mufreesboro before taking the state tournament by storm.At the state tournament held in Murfreesboro, Eastside was able to perform well enough to advance to the NASP national tournament in Louisville – an event that also saw local students from Warren County Middle School, Dibrell and Hickory Creek attend.In the national tournament, Eastside arrived knowing its team would have to score over 2,999 points to move on to Madison.
