LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Thousands of student archers from grades four through twelve have their sights set on scholarships, and are taking aim right here in Louisville.

More than 14,000 students from around the country were in town for the Archery in Schools National Tournament at the Kentucky Expo Center. 

A third of those students were from Kentucky.

The competition included 3D challenges and targets for accuracy.

"It's actually something special because my coaches and my teammates helped me get here so it was basically a teamwork," said Mitch Munion, who traveled from Minnesota to participate.

The three-day event wrapped up Saturday, cash scholarships totaling $159,000 were awarded to the top individual and team archers.
