mcc_archerySCOTTVILLE — Mason County Central High School physical education students have been practicing their archery skills the past couple of days. PE teacher Ed Sanders said the archery program was revised several years ago through a grant from the Michigan Department of Public Works which supplied the bows, arrows, netting, and targets. Through the years, though, the arrows have gotten worn out and can be expensive to replace, Sanders said.

“The Quality Deer Management Association has really stepped up to help donate money to help replace and repair the arrows,” Sanders said. “It gets to be a challenge, though, because they aren’t cheap.”

Sanders said the students seem to enjoy the archery portion of the class, even though it’s only for three days each semester. “Some of the kids have never done it before and it’s a new experience and just something new for them. It also gives them skills they will have the rest of their lives.”
