RMS Archery Team wins BACK-TO-BACK State Titles
Riverside Middle School started their archery team last year and has already won two state championships. This year’s team returned 13 archers from last year’s team and added some of the top archers from the elementary schools. The team had very high expectations to do very well this year. With their first competition on March 3, the team won the SC Archery in the Schools Region 1 Tournament. The Region 1 Tournament had six of the top eight middle schools that qualified for the state tournament. On March 26, the team traveled to Sumter, SC and competed in the SC Archery in the Schools State Tournament. The RMS Archery Team won the state tournament for the second year in a row with a record score of 3,285 points. Dylan Pierce also finished as the second place male with a score of 288 points. Next on the schedule for the archery team is the National Archery in the Schools National Tournament in Louisville, KY on May 7-9. With the great score the team posted at the state tournament, they enter the national tournament as the seventeenth place team in the nation. The team has a very good chance at winning the NASP National Championship. Good luck RMS Archery Team and GO DOGS!

Wild Wins for ASD4
This past weekend 5 Pendleton FFA members participated in the State FFA Wildlife Science Competition at Horry-Georgetown Technical College in Georgetown, SC.  After hours of written tests, practicums, management technique demonstrations and botanical identification our team was victorious.  Not only did they take the state title, but two of them actually tied for the highest scoring individual.  Students were responsible for knowing the habitat and management plans for: Eastern Wild Turkey, White-tailed Deer, Waterfowl, Bobwhite Quail, Freshwater Fish, Marine Fish, Reptiles, Amphibians, Native Plants, Invasive Species.
 
These students are all interested in pursuing a career in Agriculture and Natural Resources Management so this was a great stepping stone for them.
 
Team members include:
Antoine Hernandez (tied for highest individual)
Phillip Leaf (tied for highest individual)
Will Caldwell (second highest individual)
Jordan Radford 
Hunter Dove
