New Archery Team to Compete Against Other Schools


A new high school archery team has formed here at Socastee, and people are excited about the upcoming season. 

The team meets every Monday and Wednesday. So far, they are taking experienced shooters, and slowly coaching and adding in new ones.

The club has 19 students who will compete against other schools starting in March. JROTC already had an archery team, which will also compete separately.

Jayden Davis is a junior that’s been doing archery since elementary school. She said she is really looking forward to the coming season.

“I first joined a team in elementary school,  but unfortunately I haven’t been on a team since                COVID-19, which is making me even more excited to shoot,” she said.

Jayden has made a lot of friends from archery and this is also one of the reasons she is so excited.

My friends were doing it and  so I wanted to,” she said. 

Science Teacher Mr. Chris Weeks, who has been shooting for 15 years, is the club’s advisor.  It isn’t easy,” he said about shooting a bow. ”You can shoot lights out one day and tank the next. It takes a lot of discipline to be good day in and out.”

Ava Midkif is a sophomore who has been doing archery since 2019, and she said it gives her good discipline.

It makes me work harder and try to always do my best,” she said. “It also makes me strive and get to my goals.”

Ava looks forward to competing against other archery clubs.

The team looks really good and hopefully we will make it to nationals,” Ava said. “It would be fun to travel again, especially as a high schooler.”
