Cameron Public Schools hosted the 4th Annual LeFlore County Archery Tournament January 24, 2024. Archers from Arkoma, Cameron, Howe, LeFlore, and Shady Point competed for the highest scores. The new gymnasium/multi-purpose building was a perfect setting for the tournament. The ground level access gym floor was easily accessible and the raised theater seating was comfortable for spectators.

The Cameron high school and middle school archery teams won their 3rd straight county championships on January 24th at the 4th Annual LeFlore County Archery Tournament. The Howe high school and middle school archery teams were runners-up for the 3rd straight year.
