The Castle High School Knights archery team was recognized yesterday on the respective floors of the Indiana House of Representatives and Senate for winning the National Archery in the Schools (NASP) titles of state, national and world champion last year.
Resolutions in honor of the Knights were read by Rep. Ron Bacon (R-Chandler, District 75) and Sen. Vaneta Becker (R-Evansville, District 50), both of whom represent Castle’s area.
The Knights went undefeated in 12 regular-season matches and then won the bullseye division at the state NASP championship. They then won the Eastern National Tournament. At that event, 24 of the Castle archers each won a $1,000 scholarship as a result of their efforts.
The Knights carried their win at NASP Nationals to the 2018 NASP World Tournament, winning the title of world champion.
Indiana’s NASP program is coordinated through the DNR Division of Law Enforcement.
