Schools brought together by deadly flooding qualify for national archery tournament

By  | 

KANAWHA COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- An elementary school student with a eye on the target is heading to the National Archery Tournament.

Raylie Kinder is a fourth grade student from Bridge Elementary. She won 1st place in the elementary school girl's division at the West Virginia State Archery Tournament.

This was also the first year she competed at an archery tournament.

Raylie is a member of the Bridge Clendenin Archery Team.

The team was formed after students from Clendenin Elementary started using the same building as Bridge Elementary's student after last year's deadly flooding destroyed the school.

Elkview Middle School and Herbert Hoover High School are also going to the national competition in Louisville, Kentucky. They were put in the same school after the flooding as well.

The national tournament will take place in May.
