Tammy Wells writes, "In the early days, archery was used in hunting and combat, according to the World Archery Association.  These days, it is a competitive sport, one that inspires both young people and adults.  Just ask Emma Harmon of Sanford, who started with the North Star Rangers — the local USA Archery group — a year ago, when she was 9.  “My mom was telling me about it, and I said I’d try it out,”  she said after her turn. “I instantly loved it.  I love the teamwork, I love being here,” Harmon said.
