The Castle High School Knights archery team is being honored at the Indiana Statehouse.

The archery team was honored for winning the National Archery in the Schools titles for state, national and world championship last year.

Resolutions in honor of the Knights were read by Representative Ron Bacon (R-Chandler, District 75) and Senator Vaneta Becker (R-Evansville, District 50).

The Knights went undefeated in 12 regular-season matches, then won the bullseye division at the state NASP championship. They also won the Eastern National Tournament.

At that event, 24 of the Castle archers each won a $1,000 scholarship as a result of their efforts.

The Knights carried their win at NASP Nationals to the 2018 NASP World Tournament, winning the title of world champion.

Indiana’s NASP program is coordinated through the DNR Division of Law Enforcement.
