But the small community northeast of Champaign boasts two top-flight youth archery teams.

Armstrong High School took first place with a total team score of 3,299.

Lewiston High School was second with 3,174 and Armstrong-Ellis Grade School was third with 3,174.

Armstrong-Ellis Grade School’s winning score in the group 7th to 8th grade final was good enough to take third place overall.

Athens High School was third in the group 9th to 12th grade final with 3,121.

Lauren Hawker of Armstrong High School had the meet’s top score, with 290 out of 300 points possible.
