Four young archers from Hay River have made the NWT team which will be going to the upcoming Arctic Winter Games (AWG) when archery is introduced as a demonstration sport.

In fact, they will make up half of the eight-member team that will be heading to Whitehorse in March.

The four – Shanelle Moore, Jack Irwin, Grayson Groenewegen and Delayna Cross – won the right to be on the team at NWT trials held at Princess Alexandra School in Hay River from Jan. 23 to 25.
