ARCHERY • 3/12/19 UNIVERSITY PARK • William Shakespeare’s famous phrase ‘‘All’s well that ends well’’ certainly could apply to the 2019 NASP (National Archery in the Schools Program) Pennsylvania Tournament. For Sentinel-area archers, the state championships ended extremely well. Upper Dauphin Area regained the High School Team title, fending off challenges from Williams Valley and Halifax, the second and third-place teams, respectively. Two Line Mountain archers – Blake Rickert and Wyatt Malacusky – emerged as Boys champions for the High School and Middle School, respectively. Line Mountain also earned Middle School Team runner-up, with UDA – last year’s champion – placing fourth. Results also show many other area archers placing among the top 10. The event was held March 8 at the Multi-Sport Facility on the campus of Pennsylvania State University. Additional Sentinel-area top 10 results are as follows:
