ANAMOSA - After spending much of the last month traveling all over eastern Iowa competing at tournaments, the Anamosa Schools archery team felt good to be back at home Saturday, Jan. 4.
Hosting bullseye and 3D events at the middle school and high school sites, their scores sure showed it, too.

Machart, in just her first competition of the season, shot her way past the entire 516 shooter field winning the bullseye individual championship with a sizzling score of 292. But she wasn’t done yet, also winning the 3D shoot with an identical 292 score that bested a field of 206 shooters.
