Columbus will host more than 350 archers on Feb. 17 at Columbus High School. The third annual Cardinal Shootout is the home tournament for the Cardinals Unlimited Archery teams of the Columbus School District and is being run by the Columbus Target Club who are the Boosters for Cardinals Unlimited.
Thirteen teams from the state are competing for team and individual awards beginning at 8 a.m. and ending at 5 p.m. The 160 local Columbus archers from grades four through 12 will have their flight times throughout the day and the public is welcome with no parking or admission charge to the event. The Columbus Athletic Boosters will have concessions and there will also be a large raffle, including prizes from Johnson’s Sausage in Rio, Whitetails Unlimited, Yeti, Genesis Archery, and much more. Cardinal Embroidery will be a vendor on site for clothing.
If you are interested in supporting the local archery teams, donating to the raffle, or being a vendor at the tournament, please contact Bob Weirough from the Columbus Target Club at email@example.com.
Cardinals Unlimited swept its first tournament in Hortonville two weeks ago in all three divisions (elementary, middle school and high school team awards). Below are the fill results including individual award winners with their scores out of 300 points. Team scores are totaled by taking the top four boys, top four girls and then the next top four scores for the combined team score.
