The Petal Middle School Archery Team was recognized at the August School Board Meeting for their great success during their inaugural year. The team won second place at South State and advanced to State where they were ranked fifth which allowed them to advance to Nationals. At the NASP National Tournament held in Louisville, KY, they scored 120 points higher than they did at State which qualified them for the World Championship Tournament. At that tournament held in Madison, WI they ranked 20th in the Middle School Division. They were the only team at any grade level from Mississippi to have ever qualified and compete at the World Tournament!
