Bradley Wins Lexmark INSPIRE Award
Archery Stays Hot in Anderson County

CLE Archery sizzled in the snow by scoring a new CLE archery team record with a team score of 2974 and finished second place, out of 8 elementary schools, at the Anderson County Middle School tournament on January 24, 2015.

Also, a new first, Gabrielle Combs, who did not let the snow chill her bow, finished first place in the elementary division with a new personal best score of 260, while Olivia Barker, iced a new personal best score of 255 and finished third in the same division. Overall, 12 of your CLE archer shot their personal best scores.

We have shared with the archers that good things happen when your work hard. Not only in archery, but in school, at home and in life. They have been putting forth a great deal of effort in practice and their efforts are being revealed in tournaments.

The next two weeks are going to set CLE archery up for the State Tournament, with the pre-regional tournament and the regional tournament in Nicholasville, KY.

CLE Archers Place 2nd

The Collins Lane Elementary Archery Team placed 2nd in the WHHS Archery Tournament. Below is the team holding the 2nd place tourney trophy. Katie T. is sporting her third place elementary girls medal and Makayla M. (not pictured finished 4th place in elementary girls division. We are super proud of ALL of our archers. This is the earliest in the year CLE has ever shot in a tournament and it is the best team score we have ever had this early in the year. They have now set their mark from which to climb.
