The students are working hard, and we would like to extend an invitation for fans to attend any contest convenient for your schedule. Piney Woods has built an extremely talented team of archers with their eyes set on hitting their targets, as soon as the season starts. PWS is associated with the Mississippi High School Activities Association, the governing body for athletics in the state.
The team is under the director of Coach Christopher Windfield. Windfield had to complete an eight-hour course and pass a certification examination, in order to coach the team.
