Archery club has banner year at state
In their fifth year of competition, a group of local youth archers took the state by storm. The Moffat County 4-H Club Silver Slingers, a team of youth archers ages 9-19, won the grand championship in one juniors class and had its other teams place highly to have its best year ever at the Colorado State Archery Shoot in Pueblo Aug. 19. The junior team (children ages 8-13) that competed in the compound bow unlimited class won the state championship, while the junior compound limited team finished fifth overall. The senior (ages 14-18) compound unlimited team took third place in its division. Sarah Polly, who coaches the team along with husband Shawn Polly, said it was the best weekend ever for a team that has had success in the past.
