      Youth archery program thrives

      The archery program at Gwinn High School is expanding and becoming more popular.

      Saturday, the school held a training course for seven more volunteer instructors. They learned proper setup, whistle commands, the process of shooting and aiming the bow, and, above all, safety. It's all a part of the National Archery in Schools program. The program held its first two week course last March for more than 100 students.

      "It's a lot of fun teaching these kids. They're a little bashful once they start. Once they get into it and they start keeping scores and stuff like that, they get a little competitive," said Instructor John Filizetti.

      With the seven new instructors, Gwinn High School will have 12 volunteer instructors for the program.
