Student Archers Aim for State Title at Perry Competition

The Georgia National Fairgrounds and Agricenter in Perry became the bullseye for more than 600 amateur archers from around the state.

The students, grades 4th through 12th, set their sights on winning Wednesday's state archery competition, so they could advance to nationals.

The Dodge County team seemed poised to hit that target.

17-year-old Blayre Durden is a member of the team. Archery didn't start out as her goal.

She only pulled back her first bow after a teacher's suggestion. Durden said, "He said, 'Hey. We're gonna have an archery team.' I was like archery?"

Arrows were pointing in a new direcetion anyway. Her softball career had missed the mark.

Durden said, "My coaches never really seemed to have the time to explain balls and strikes. So, I didn't get far."

With archery, she soared.

Durden said, "I picked up this bow, and I hit bullseye!"
