PICTURE OF THE MONTH
Our NASP (National Archery in the Schools Program) teams from Aztec High School, Koogler Middle School, and Mesa View Middle School here in Farmington went to the state tournament and REPRESENTED!!
AZTEC HIGH and KOOGLER both brought home TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPS!! MESA VIEW won 2ND PLACE in the team event!! In the middle school division PALOMA VILLALOBOS is your STATE CHAMP from MESA VIEW!! ALLEN BRADSHAW from MESA VIEW got 2ND!! CODY SMITH from KOOGLER took 3RD!! Yep, that's right folks, a clean sweep from SAN JUAN COUNTY in the middle school division! In the HS division CLINT VALERIO is your STATE CHAMP from AZTEC and DOUGLAS HOOD placed 2ND, also from AZTEC!!
There were 631 SHOOTERS from around the state so don't think these kids won cuz no one was there!! Including practice shots 22,085 shots were fired last Saturday in Rio Rancho's Santa Ana Center! All three of these teams have qualified for NATIONALS, the 2nd week of May in LOUISVILLE, KY!
Because of high traveling costs it will be tough to get these kids there, but if you would like to donate, stop by Xpert Archery and we will have a bucket to throw some dollars into. Also we may have a fundraising 3D shoot soon so watch Facebook and your emails! Special thanks to the coaches of these teams BRENT MCFARLAND in AZTEC and NICK DELAY from MESA VIEW!! You guys ROCKED IT!!!
