Pinnacle Classical Academy to Host State Archery Championship

By News

Pinnacle Classical Academy, a K-12 public charter school in Shelby, North Carolina, will host a state archery competition on Saturday. Last year, the Pinnacle Thunderbirds placed third in the country at the Scholastic 3-D Archery (S3DA) 3D National Championship in Rend Lake, Illinois. Makenzie Glenn, a 9th grader, won the Individual S3DA National Championship (youth female pins division).  (Read more about those accomplishments here.)

Pinnacle has provided the following information about this year’s statewide competition:

Pinnacle Classical Academy will host the North Carolina Scholastic 3-D Archery (S3DA) State Championship on Saturday, June 8, at its grade 4-12 campus on Joes Lake Rd. in Shelby.

Check-in begins at 7:30 AM, with an 8:30 safety meeting and a 9:00 AM shotgun start. Concessions, including various food items, will be available during breakfast and lunch hours.

The North Carolina S3DA State Championship is open to the public with free admission. Members of the community are invited to cheer on the PCA Thunderbirds — whose archers have won multiple state and national championships — as well as talented archers from other teams.

Pinnacle Classical Academy is a free public charter school in Shelby that attracts 1,165 students from five counties. PCA’s elementary school, middle school, and high school are all ranked among America’s best schools by U.S. News & World Report.
