LINCOLN, Neb. – Gabe Collins of Nebraska City and Roxanne Hyland of Oakland-Craig had the high overall scores March 26 in the National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) state tournament.

Collins led all boys with 276 points and Hyland led the girls with 271.

The event at the Lancaster Event Center in Lincoln drew more than 400 elementary, middle school and high school archers from 17 schools. The sixth annual tournament, the largest youth archery event in the state, was the culminating event in the state for NASP, which is a physical education curriculum that has spread across the nation.

The top-scoring seniors, Chris Haase of Oakland-Craig at 265 points and Lupe Rodrigues of Nebraska City at 240, each earned a $600 Saunders Scholarship.

“The enthusiasm, sportsmanship and courtesy the archers, coaches and volunteers bring to this tournament every year is awesome,” Match Director Jim Tubbs said. “Being able to be part of this tournament from the beginning, with 165 archers to more than 400 this year and last, says a lot about the program.”

The state tournament was made possible by the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, Nebraska State Archery Association, Lincoln Prairie Bowmen Archery Club, Golden Arrow Archery Club of Omaha, Saunders Archery, and several volunteers.

All top-five individual finishers qualified for the national tournament, as well as the Lincoln North Star and Omaha Mater Dei Academy high school teams and Lincoln Pound middle school and elementary teams.
