More than 300 archers were in town over the weekend, as the Daviess County High School team hosted the Western Kentucky S3DA Indoor Regional Tournament.

The event, held at the Daviess County Fairgrounds, featured 324 archers from 50 different teams and clubs across Kentucky. About 1,500 spectators attended the two—day tournament.

The Daviess County archery program is Scholastic 3D Archery, and the athletes shoot a variety of bows ranging from traditional, Olympic recurve or basic compound bow (hunting bow).

High school archers shoot at a 20—yard distance and elementary shoot at a 10—yard distance.  During indoor, they shoot at paper targets that will either be a one spot with scoring rings or a five spot with scoring rings.
