<a href="" target="_blank">Over the last four years, Williams Valley has established itself as the team to beat at the annual National Archery in the Schools Program State Tournament at Harrisburg.

During that span, however, no one has been able to meet the challenge and beat the Vikings. Since the High School Division team finished as state runner-up in its first appearance in 2006 at the inaugural tournament, the Vikings have won four straight titles and established a foundation that holds the promise of future success as their state title in the Middle School Division was the third in four years.

In the High School Division, the Vikings defeated Blue Ridge 2,417-2,216, and in the Middle School Division defeated Montrose 2,262-2,173. Williams Valley also produced the male and female individual champions in the competition for seniors, juniors and sophomores.

This year's senior champions are Steve Harrison and Sara Green, the junior champions are Tyler Yanoscak and Sabrina Mione and the sophomore champions are Zach Keim and Katherine Firestine. Including the six champions, 22 Vikings won medals in grades 7-12.

This year, the 82 team members were the most for any of the school's sports teams, and while the season culminates with the state tournament in April, it gets under way in November. Practices are held four days a week, and the results of the intensive practice regimen are reflected by the senior high team winning by more than 200 points and the middle school team winning by nearly 100 points.
