It’s ladies first at Blaney Elementary School’s (BES) Archery Club practice. BES physical education teacher Scott Lewis, the club and team’s director, said he not only teaches students the art of archery, but life-long social skills as well. “Let’s play like champions today and let the force be with you,” Lewis said before the ladies leave the long row of fourth- and fifth-graders lined up against the gym wall.
