The Anderson County Middle School archery team is bent on defending its title, but needs some financial back to do so.
The team, which won the world archery shoot last year in Florida, will sponsor a car wash Saturday, Sept. 17 at the Soap Factory, located on US 127 Bypass.
The team will wash cars in return for donations, according to team parent Brian Peyton.
The event is scheduled from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The team garnered attention locally and statewide by capturing the world title last year in Orlando, Fla., competing against several international teams.
The team will leave for Florida on Oct. 5, and will compete Oct. 8.
It competes as part of the National Archery in School Program, which has swelled in size and is one of the fastest growing sports in schools.
Defending the title isn’t cheap, Peyton said, because besides transporting the team to Florida, hotel rooms and tournament entry fees must also be paid for.
Those not able to participate in the car wash are welcome to make donations at the middle school.
