Russellville Independent Schools’ Archery teams are competing at state this weekend. The Elementary, Middle and High School teams are at the Kentucky Expo Center in Louisville for the State Archery Competition on March 15-16. 

The Stevenson Elementary team will shoot 3-D, along with the following Stevenson individuals that will shoot Bullseye: Ethan O'Neal, Tayshon Cross and Jakeria Burkina. The Middle school and High School teams will shoot both 3-D and Bullseye as a team. 

Since Archery Coach Jeremy Rust has been with the school, this is the fourth time in the last five years that Russellville has been to state as a team. Coach Rust said, “I’m extremely proud of the team this year. The dedication to be better archers and students has shown, and now they get to prove it at State.”  

Senior archer and Captain Ethan Paul says, “I couldn’t be more proud to be a part of this team. Our team has put in the time, now it’s time to make our mark at State!” 

The archers are shooting to qualify for Nationals, which will be held in May. The team has worked hard this season, competing in over 14 tournaments.
