Barker signs on with University of the Cumberlands archery program Barker

Marion County High School senior Tanner Barker became the first-ever MCHS student to sign on to compete in archery at the collegiate level when he signed with the University of the Cumberlands Tuesday, November 26 at Marion County High School.

“It feels really good,” Barker said of his signing. “Plus, I think I can help others who don’t play the main sports, like basketball and football, and show them that you don’t have to play one of those main sports to go to college and compete in athletics.”
