Three Fourth Grade Students from Prescott Valley School Qualify for National Archery Tournament
Laureli Potter, Caitlin Lumley and Shelby Engelhardt Qualified to Represent the School at the 2016 NASP Nationals in Louisville, Kentucky in May
(PRESCOTT VALLEY, Arizona)—In May, one fourth grader from Prescott Valley School will board a plane and head to Louisville, Kentucky to compete in the NASP Nationals.
Laureli Potter, Caitlin Lumley and Shelby Engelhardt all performed well enough at the recent Arizona Archery in the Schools State Championship and 3D Shoot held at the Ben Avery Shooting Facility in Anthem to qualify for Nationals on May 12 to 14. Laureli will be the only student competing at Nationals this year as the other girls are unable to make the trip.
“Laureli placed second in her division and third in the Elementary Girls Division of fourth and fifth graders,” said Archery Coach Jani Wagter, adding that all four fourth grade students from the school’s archery club placed in the recent competition.
“Caitlin placed fifth in her division and eighth in the Elementary Girls Division and Shelby placed sixth in her division and tenth in the Elementary Girls Division.”
The students were among 290 archers who competed at the recent tournament. Using a standard NASP-approved compound bow, the archers shoot three sets of five arrows at 10 and again at 15 meters from the target.
Wagter said she is thrilled for all three of the girls, and is also very proud of team member Julian Gutierrez, a fourth grader who just missed placing in the Elementary Boys Division. Julian placed third in his division and fourteenth place in the Elementary Boys Division.
“This is their first year in the archery program and none of the students have shot before,” Wagter said.
“The fourth graders are the youngest members of a team of nine students and have accomplished a great deal in the sport of archery in a short amount of time. I couldn’t be more proud to be their coach. I have a great team of students dedicated to the sport of archery.”
