LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Some Lufkin students are heading to the state archery tournament.

Six student's from St. Cyprian's school have qualified through their physical education program to compete in the archery competition.

The students, ranging in grades 2nd through 5th, participated in a qualifying tournament at the school over the Christmas Break.

Earlier this week the results were released which were a relief to both the coach and students.

"I was sitting on eggshells until I found out and I was excited that six of my students were able to go," said Coach Amanda Gentry.

"I was really excited. I didn't think I was going to be able to make it," said 3rd grader Lauren Gentry.

The state tournament is February 15th in Belton.

If the students do well enough they will qualify for the national competition in Kentucky later this year.
