The Union Grove ISD Archery Club hosted the first-ever “Field Tip Fiasco-Spring Fling” 3-D archery tournament on Saturday, May 1.

The event was a fundraiser for the club and was open to the public.

UG Supt. of Schools Brian Gray said the event was a big success.

“We had close to 60 competitors in multiple skill divisions and they had a great time,” he said. “A lot of our N.A.S.P. archers did well and we were able to raise funds for our kids. We raffled off a new Mathew’s bow and a guided hog hunt at the world-famous Heart’s Bluff Ranch. All in all, it was a great day.”

Union Grove ISD participates in the National Archery in the Schools Program and has close to 90 students involved in the after-school archery club.

Many of those students compete and represent UG at invitational and state competitions. Noah Mayhan, a third grader, will represent Union Grove at the National Archery competition in Kentucky later this month, after qualifying at the state competition held in February.

Gray said that the 3-D tournament will be an annual event and that Union Grove will host one in the Fall and in the Spring next year.
