Archery Team of the Year: Bullitt East
Bullitt East’s girls’ archery team had a superb 2016 season. They went 14-0 and won their region with a score of 3,409. The Chargers were led by Sydney Marcum, who placed 1st with a score of 296. At the state tournament, Bullitt East placed 8th and also garnered a 6th place finish at the NASP World Tournament.
The Chargers’ team score of 3,416 during the season was a Bullitt Country record. Two of their archers were awarded athletic scholarships: Sierra Waddle became the first archer to earn a scholarship in Bullitt County, signing with Campbellsville University; and Morgan Vaughn was awarded an athletics scholarship to Union College.
