Teams from several counties took top honors at the 4-H Archery Indoor Championship held recently at the Nishu Bowmen Archery Complex in Bismarck.

The match is the culminating event for the winter indoor archery circuit. The circuit consists of six district matches with archers earning eligibility to participate in the state championship. The top two district scores for each archer are added to the score from the state championship to determine placing. Team placings are calculated on the scores of the top three archers of a county team of four in the championship match.

The match for beginner, junior and senior barebow archers consists of shooting 30 arrows at a 10-ring, 80-centimeter target at a distance of 15 yards. The maximum score for each arrow is 10 points with a maximum total score of 300 points. The number of 10s scored is used as a tie breaker.

The match for the freestyle bow division uses a five-ring, 40-centimeter target face or five-spot face option. The beginner and junior divisions shoot 15 arrows for a maximum score of five points for each arrow and 150 points for the match. The senior freestyle match is shot at a distance of 20 yards with 60 arrows. The maximum score is 300. The freestyle targets have an X ring in the middle of the target.
