LINCOLN, Neb. – Jaci Tubbs and Liberty Sears set a state record high score for females in the National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) state tournament March 24 at Speedway Sporting Village in Lincoln.

Tubbs, of Lincoln’s North Star High School, and Sears’ of Lincoln East High, each scored 288 out of possible 300 points for the highest scores of the meet. Tubbs won a shoot-off to take the state title in the high school female division. She had finished second in 2016 and 2017.

The overall male high score was a 286 by Jose Nevada of Omaha’s Mater Dei Academy.

Lincoln’s Pound Middle School broke its own state record for a middle school team score with 3,177 points. Pound had set the record in 2016, and then tied it last year.

The 2018 event, the 13th in Nebraska, saw 853 registered archers. Archers shot 15 arrows at targets from 10 meters and 15 arrows from 15 meters.

NASP is an in-school curriculum covering target archery for students in grades 4-12. In Nebraska, 285 schools have NASP as part of their physical education curriculum, and 35,000 students participate each school year. The state tournament is the largest archery event in Nebraska.
