The Alma Bryant High School Hurricane Archery Team won the 2013 Alabama National Archery in the Schools (NASP) Tournament title, held this year for the first time in Montgomery, for the 7th consecutive year! Bryant’s team score was a 3442, which established a new record total for Alabama high schools.
Wendi Thomas continued her winning ways in the female high school division and top overall shooter with a score of 296 (of a possible 300). Freshman Miles Wilson won the male high school level division for the first time with a score of 295 (of a possible 300), after winning three consecutive state championships at the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade levels. The other archers who rounded out Bryant’s top twelve archers were: Kendall Newell (290), D.J. Barnes (288), Tyler Williams (287), Zach Ryals (287), Mason Johnson (286), Joshua Schjott (284), Nathan Esbensen (284), Morgan Weaver (284), Kayla Graham (282), and Carrie Bentley (279).

Bryant will now represent Alabama at the National NASP Tournament in Louisville, Kentucky, on May 10th and 11th. Bryant enters this tournament with the 2nd best team score in the country from the state competitions behind Trigg County, Kentucky, which was the 2012 National and World champions.
Coach Roy Richardson and the Hurricane Archery Team would like to thank the Alma Bryant faculty, staff, Booster Club of the program, and, of course, our archers for their hard work in ensuring that our program is so successful and represents Mobile County well.
