RMS Archery Team wins BACK-TO-BACK State Titles
Riverside Middle School started their archery team last year and has already won two state championships. This year’s team returned 13 archers from last year’s team and added some of the top archers from the elementary schools. The team had very high expectations to do very well this year. With their first competition on March 3, the team won the SC Archery in the Schools Region 1 Tournament. The Region 1 Tournament had six of the top eight middle schools that qualified for the state tournament. On March 26, the team traveled to Sumter, SC and competed in the SC Archery in the Schools State Tournament. The RMS Archery Team won the state tournament for the second year in a row with a record score of 3,285 points. Dylan Pierce also finished as the second place male with a score of 288 points. Next on the schedule for the archery team is the National Archery in the Schools National Tournament in Louisville, KY on May 7-9. With the great score the team posted at the state tournament, they enter the national tournament as the seventeenth place team in the nation. The team has a very good chance at winning the NASP National Championship. Good luck RMS Archery Team and GO DOGS!

RMS Contestant at National Spelling Bee
Emily Ladines had an exciting Spelling Bee journey this year.  She won the school Spelling Bee, the Regional Spelling Bee, and then advanced to participate in the National Spelling Bee.  She traveled with her family to the National Bee and participated in Bee Week activities, rounds of testing, touring, and ceremonies.  As preliminary Spelling Bee rounds began, she took to the stage with confidence and poise standing among 283 of the nation's best young spellers. 

Through her appearance, she represented Riverside Middle School, Anderson District 4, and the state of South Carolina.  Although she did not qualify to compete in the final Spelling Bee rounds, her accomplishment is definitely something to be proud of.  Congratulations Emily!
