WHITLEY COUNTY — The Impact Archery Middle School (sixth-, seventh- and eighth-grades) youth archery team recently completed the Kentucky S3DA ‘Triple Crown’ of State Championships.

This dedicated group of young archers started their journey on March 2 when they traveled to the West Kentucky Archery Complex in Madisonville and took first place in the Kentucky S3DA Indoor State Championship, becoming the KY S3DA Indoor State Club Champions.

The next stop for the team was Cincinnati, Ohio on March 15, where they vied for the S3DA National Championship.

They were able to defeat some very talented teams from across the nation to win their first national title — winning the 2019 S3DA National Indoor Middle School Club Championship.

After the completion of indoor season, the team turned their focus to the 3-D season. After several regional wins, they headed to London on June 15 to compete in the Kentucky S3DA 3-D State Championship.

Once again there were several tough teams competing, but Impact Archery was able to edge out the competition and win their second State Championship of the year to become the KY S3DA 3-D State Club Champions.

The ‘Triple Crown’, so to speak, was completed on June 29 when the team once again returned to the place it all started this season — West Kentucky Archery Complex in Madisonville. They came away the victors in their third State Championship of the season by winning the the KY S3DA Outdoor Target State Championship. The team will travel to Metropolis, Illinois in July to compete in both the S3DA National 3-D and S3DA National Outdoor Target Championships, with hopes of bringing home two more national titles.
