AIR DATE: May 28, 2012

Christiana-Marie Wilburn is your typical teen: she likes to travel, and sometimes dyes her hair with green streaks.  But she also likes to carry around a bow and arrow.  She picked up the sport while visiting a Renaissance fair in Austria.  Now, eight months later, she snatched the state title at the National Archery in the Schools (NASP) Tournament in February.  She's fresh back from the 2012 NASP Nationals in Louisville, Kentucky.  We talk to her about the nuances of the sport, and what it takes to be right on target.
