The Lincoln County High Archery team competed at the National tournament on May 10th. Connor Patterson scored 297 points, tying him with two other high school males for first place. He won the shoot off, placing him in first place out of 1684 high school male archers nationwide.
He was one of eight male archers invited to join the top eight female archers to form the All-American team that will compete at the World Archery Championship this summer in Madison, Wisconsin.
In the scholarship shoot off, Connor placed third and received a $5,000 scholarship.
The team finished 35th out of 164 teams with an average of 276 points each. Connor and the team also competed in the 2014 IBO 3-D Tournament. The team placed ninth out of 77 teams from across the country and Connor placed fourth out of 367 high school male archers.
Congratulations to Ricky Mullins, the LCHS Archery Coach, and these Archers for their remarkable accomplishments!
