BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Archers from Hankinson, Wahpeton and Wilton took top honors at an annual state archery tournament.
North Dakota's Game and Fish Department says Hankinson won the high school championship, Wahpeton won the middle school title and Wilton topped the elementary school division at the recent National Archery in the Schools state tournament in Bismarck. All three teams advance to national competition.
Program coordinator Jeff Long says the tournament continues to grow, with more than 500 archers registered this year. That's up more than 20 percent from last year.
The overall male and female champions were Kyle Andres of Medina and Lisa Buckhaus of Hankinson.
