Students in Pickens are using the Maple Syrup Festival to draw some attention to a sport that is popular in the area.

The students hosted a bake sale at the Maple Syrup Festival Saturday and a 3D shoot to help raise money for their archery team.

Clarrysa Kelly said archery is important because Pickens is a small school that doesn't have many team sports. 

"There are a lot of people that come in and look and they're like 'oh, there's and archery team up here' and that. The Maple Syrup Festival is a good way to sponsor our archery team and getting people to understand that there are other sports besides football and basketball," Kelly said.

Kelly also said archery is not a popular sport but that she would like to see that change.
