An Upstate archery team is heading to the World Tournament in Orlando, Florida!

The Greenville Hurricanes Archery team will face off against dozens of other archery teams on July 21 and 22 for the title of World Champions.

The team recently competed in the National Championship in Kentucky in May, scoring a total of 3,337 points and earning them spot 56 in the nation.

The middle school Archers team also placed with a total score of 3,115.

Team Manager Colleen Pusateri said the high school team, which holds second place in the nation among homeschool archery teams, continues to practice over the summer as they get ready for the World Tournament.

Pusateri said the team had started reading T.C. Stallings book “Playing on God’s Team” and incorporating discussions about the book into practice sessions. She said the author found out his book was making a difference and reached out to the team to thank them.

“When I first wrote the [book], I visualized teams all across the world coming together and growing in Christ with their teammates. You all represent the purpose of the book, the heart of the book, and made my vision a reality,” Pusateri said Stallings wrote in a text to the team.
