The fourth time was the charm for the Columbia 11u all-stars Sunday as they claimed their first World Series championship in Brookhaven in four tries.
The five-time state champs had come close several times before but finally broke through the glass ceiling.
Columbia Academy held its annual archery camp July 15 through July 18 and had a record 83 archers from nine different schools participate.
Archery coach Mike Barber said the school’s program and the instructors for the camp drew the record crowd.
The legend of Columbia Academy slugger Slade Wilks continues to grow with the rising senior named both an Under Armour and Perfect Game All-American.
That marks him as one of the top 40 players in the nation and gives him the opportunity to play at two big league stadiums in nationally broadcast games.
