State archery tournament preparations

Thousands of arrows will fly Friday and Saturday at Wausau West High School.

The school is hosting the National Archery in Schools Program Wisconsin state tournament.

More than 1,200 students from 60 school districts will compete.

Students in grades four through 12 will take part. This is the eighth year of the event, but the first time it's being held in Wausau.

"We're going to see some fantastic displays of accuracy," said Dan Schroeder, the Archery Education Program Administrator. "I think the biggest thing you're going to see is the sportsmanship and how much the kids enjoy being a part of this tournament."

Winners may qualify for the national competition in July. The tournament starts at 9 a.m. Friday.
