Lincoln student champion archer

CHICKASHA —

 

Riane Tuthill, a fifth grade student at Lincoln Elementary in Chickasha, was on target at the National Archery in the Schools Program competition this spring. 

Tuthill was named the fifth grade archery national champion at the National Archery in the Schools Program out of 1,500 fifth graders. 

Overall, she placed 35th out of 9,800 archery competitors, ranging from fourth grade to high school seniors. Tuthill shot targets ten to fifteen meters away in the Olympic style archery competition. 

This is not Tuthill's first high-placing tournament. Last year, she placed 2nd in the fourth, fifth and sixth grade division. 

The competition took place in Kentucky. It was a long trip to the competition, but Tuthill and her team made time to practice in an open field at their hotel.

Tuthill is the third national champion out of Chickasha's archery team in five years, coached by Pete Bush, Assistant Superintendent of Chickasha Public School. 

Tuthill has been involved in archery for two years. Her coach at Grand Ave. Elementary suggested she join the archery team when the P.E. class did archery as a unit. 

Tuthill is not only a great shot, she enjoys the sport. 

"I like shooting and being there with my friends," Tuthill said. 

Riding horseback and cheer are among her other interests. 

Her parents are Deana and Tony Tuthill and her brother is Ashton Tuthill
