Newport News, Va. - Archery has been around Newport News at the high school and middle school levels for awhile, but the first team to ever go o the world championships will be the Richneck Elementary school archery team.

They won their city tournament and qualified at both the state and national level in order to make it to their next challenge - the world tournament in Nashville, Tennessee.

There have been other teams in the area to qualify for the world tournament, but Richneck will be the first school to ever actually make the trip.

The tournament is set for July 23-25 and the team is busy fundraising to help with transportation and lodging. If you would like to help, here's their GoFundMe page:
