   The James E. Bazzell Middle School (JEBMS) archers enjoyed strong performances at the National Archery in Schools Program (NASP®) Open Championships and IBO 3-D Championships Thursday and Friday at the Music City Center in Nashville.

  The JEBMS sharp shooters participated both Thursday and Friday in the 3-D portion of the event---the part of the NASP® competition in which archers shoot at targets representing wildlife. On Thursday, the team placed first in their four-team flight with a score of 1461, thus qualifying to participate in Friday’s 3-D championships. The team improved their score to 1481 to finish 31st in the 38 team championship flight.

   Cole Meador---an incoming freshman at the Allen County-Scottsville High School---led the squad both days. Meador posted a score of 256 on Thursday, fifth among the 15 eight graders competing and 11th in the flight field. Meador improved his score to 275 on the final day to place 51st overall in the 291 middle school archer field.
