Eight Goldendale Archery Sharpshooters placed in the top four at last weekend's Washington State 4H state shoot in Eatonville, while the team also captured first and second place medals in the compound archery team events.

"Many of the kids shot their best scores ever," coach Bill Campbell said. "Instead of crushing under pressure, they all exceeded the pressure."

Mason Conroy emerged as the state champ in the senior division and Braxton Seaver was the top shooter in the junior division earning state title honors as well.

Following Conroy in the senior division was Tori Tallman, who finished right behind in second place, and Cameron Mains, who finished fourth and qualified for next year's national shoot along with Conroy.

After Seaver's top finish in the junior level, Wyatt Bolton was the runner-up and Jackson Gamble finished third.

In the intermediate level, Natalie Johnson took third place and Kali Watson finished fourth.

Of all the teams from around the state in attendance, nobody had more placings than the Goldendale Sharpshooters.

Goldendale's group also took home the Golden Arrow Trophy as well, which went to the team with the highest cumulative score.

Next up for two of Goldendale's senior shooters is nationals. Tallman and Quinn Perry will be in Grand Island, Nebraska, from June 25-29 to compete against the best in the country.

There will be a baked potato feed on June 2 at the American Legion from 5-7 p.m. to help raise funds for both to attend nationals.
