San Diego Students Take Top Honors in DFG State Archery Competition

From California Department of Fish and Game

Two San Diego students are the top shots in the California National Archery in the Schools Program (CalNASP) second annual Virtual State Archery Tournament. Billy Decanay and Michelle Lizarraga, both seniors at Kearny High School, had the highest scores in the statewide tournament. Both students, along with the first through fifth ranking individuals in each division (elementary, middle and high school) can move onto the national competition.

“We are very proud of all the students who participated in the Virtual State Archery Tournament and we would especially like to commend the two top shooters from Kearny High School,” said California NASP Program Manager Lesa Johnston. “It’s great to see young people interested in a sport that requires dedication and focus to be proficient. Archery is a lifelong sport and can easily translate into other outdoor pursuits.”

The Virtual State Archery Tournament is designed to give students the opportunity to challenge their mastery of the sport in a supportive environment in which they can compete with other students statewide. Students compete in their own gymnasiums and their scores are posted in a national database where the state and individual scores and rankings are available. Decanay was the top male shooter and top overall shooter in the state competition, and Lizarraga was the top female shooter of the competition.


Both archers will each receive a new Genesis Special Edition compound bow donated by the manufacturer at a special school ceremony in May.


CalNASP is an affiliate of the National Archery in the Schools Program and is hosted by the California Department of Fish and Game. Funding for CalNASP is provided by the Federal Aid and Wildlife Restoration Act. For more information, please visit www.dfg.ca.gov/nasp.
