Three-peat is a made-up word that holds special meaning in the sports world. It only applies to athletes or teams that win three consecutive championships.

Three-peat is being heard a lot in the halls of Ashville Middle School this week, thanks to the archery team’s spectacular performance at the national competition in Louisville, Ky., last weekend.

The win was especially sweet for the Ashville kids, as they wore on their backs the words, “Shooting for Shoal Creek Valley.” Coach Jeremy Cox said the team had new shirts made for the national competition to show that their hearts were with those recovering from tornado damage back home. “That’s the Ashville area,” Cox said, “and it’s a community many of us live in.”

AMS also produced an individual national champion, first-year shooter Hannah Howard; a national champion runner-up, Jimmy Williams; a third-place finish for Chase Roberts; and a fourth-place finish for fifth-grader Lauren Staples.

Congratulations to the team for their fine shooting and for representing Ashville, St. Clair County and Alabama so well.
