OCEAN HILL - Archers got behind their bows and arrows on Saturday for the Battle of the Boroughs archery tournament.

More than 100 students showed up to compete and show off their accuracy skills. 

The tournament is set up by CAMBA's Beacon Community Center. It's a nonprofit that teaches kids archery and other skills on the weekend and at after-school programs.

Students say that the sport doesn't just look cool, it also teaches things like discipline and self-confidence.

This is the ninth year for the annual competition, and they hope to stay on target for another competition next year.
