Teams from several counties took top honors at the 4-H Archery Indoor Championships held recently in Edgeley.

This event is the culmination of five indoor matches across North Dakota beginning in Bismarck in January. Other matches were held in Watford City, Minot, Cando and West Fargo. Youth must attend at least two of these district matches to participate in the championships. The best two district scores and the score at the championships place the archers and teams.

Archers from 8 to 18 years old competed in three age divisions and two bow divisions: barebow and freestyle.

Bare bow divisions cannot use a sight or release. Archers shoot six sets of five arrows at a 10-ring, 80-centimeter (cm) target at a distance of 15 yards. The contest for barebow is the same for all ages.

The Dickey County team of Landon Schmidt, Madeline Thorpe and Drew Thorpe took first place in beginner barebow. Individual winners were:

  • First - Camden Weist, McIntosh County, with a cumulative score of 724 out of a possible 900 points
  • Second - Njos Zakai, Slope County, with a score of 671
  • Third - Ava Dunlop, Burleigh County, with a score of 658
  • Fourth - Schmidt, with a score of 651

Archers participating in the freestyle unlimited match can use sights and a release. Beginner and junior age archers shoot six sets of five arrows. The target is a National Field Archery Association indoor 20-cm, two-ring, five-spot target or a 40-cm, five-ring, single-spot target, with the archer having a choice.

The target distance is 15 yards for beginner and junior divisions. The senior division contest requires 12 sets of five arrows at a target distance of 20 yards.
