Here are some additional highlights from Pinnacle Classical Academy’s news release this morning:

Heather Carswell, an eleventh grader, placed fourth in the nation in the young adult division, and the school’s youth team placed third in the nation. Pinnacle Classical Academy had the highest ranked school youth team at the national championship, placing behind two club teams.
“What an amazing weekend,” said Todd Tongel, coach of the Pinnacle Classical Academy Thunderbirds archery team. “These students and parents traveled ten hours to compete against the best young archers in the country and held their own once again.”
… Earlier, at the North Carolina S3DA 3D State Championship, held on June 10 in Mount Airy, the middle school (youth) team won the state title, and four Thunderbirds (Heather Carswell, Makenzie Glenn, Anzlee Kilby, and Aidyn Smith) received shooter of the year awards.
Congratulations to these young archers and to Pinnacle Classical Academy!
