14,139 archers on 663 teams shot in the Bullseye National Championships and 5,456 archers on 280 teams shot in the 3D IBO National Championships.

Hartland MS finished in 12th place in the MS division and the ES team came in 16th for their division! So top 20 for all three teams and another National Championship!
In the Bullseye Event, Hartland High School nearly made it a clean sweep with National Championships, but ended up as the National Championship Runner-Ups in 2nd place with a 3449 out of 3600. They missed first place by 14 points and edged out the third place team by only 5!! Awesome Job!!
Hartland MS finished in 13th place in the MS division and the ES team came in 22nd for their division. So top 25 for all three teams and another National Champion Runner-Up!
