These tournaments are all a part of the National Archery in Schools Program (NASP).

Licking spends the month of October introducing the sport of archery in 4th thru 12th grade Physical Education classes. Starting in January those interested (5th-12th) are invited to participate in the afterschool program and attend tournaments.
At Laquey, Madison and Chloe Wallace placed first and second respectfully in the 5th grade division. The Dent-Phelps tournament brought home two champions: Randall Dodd won the Middle School Division and first among 6th grade boys while Keely Gorman won the elementary girls division and brought home first in the 5th grade girls division. Several other archers placed in the top 10 of their divisions in both tournaments.
The archery team will be ending its season with two more tournaments in February and the state NASP tournament in Branson at the end of March.
