MARIAH TAGUE

Tunkhannock and Elk Lake were among the nearly 1,000 National Archery in Schools Program archers that competed at this weekend’s 2019 Pennsylvania NASP State Tournament at the Penn State Multi Sport Complex and is a qualifier for Nationals in Louisville, Kentucky, which will be held May 9-11.

Students from 49 schools across Pennsylvania competed in State College.

Lady Tiger Mariah Tague finished highest for Tunkhannock, with 289 points, including 20 tens. Her score was good for fourth overall, third for high school, and second for twelfth grade girls.

Breezy Corker will also represent the Tigers at nationals, after earning a 284 with 15 tens. She was fourteenth in overall girls scoring, earning eighth place for high school girls and third out of female juniors.

On the Elk Lake team, sophomore Ethan Brown claimed the highest finish with 281 points (14 tens). He earned 28th place overall for the boys, including 20 in high school boys and third for tenth grade boys.

Tague qualified to advannce to nationals with her second place finish at PSU.

From Elk Lake, Brown and Camden Ruark are attending Nationals. Brown placed second in the IBO 3D State Tournament, which allows him to attend, and Ruark placed seventh at the bullseye States Tournament which earned him a trip to Kentucky as well.

Because the NASP does tiered registrations, if there are still openings, a team can sign up to attend nationals even if they didn’t place in the top 3. Tier 1 registrations are the top 3 teams.

As for individauls, the top 10 in the state tournament for bullseye, and top 10 for 3D advance to the next level.

The National Archery in the Schools Program is an in-school program aimed at improving educational performance among students in grades 4th - 12th.Through it students are learning focus, self-control, discipline, patience, and the life lessons required to be successful in the classroom and in life.

NASP, which started in Kentucky in 2002 and has since gained participants around the globe, came to Pennsylvania in 2005.

The Pennsylvania Game Commission began coordinating the program in 2010 and, to present, the program has expanded to 270 schools.

The increase in participants is representative of growth in the program statewide.
