A Stillwater teen will represent the United States at the 2014 World Archery Indoor Championships in France.

Brogan Williams, 18, was the top shooter last weekend in the women's junior compound division at the USA Archery Team Trials in Newberry, Fla. Archers ages 20 and younger competed in the junior division.

The top three shooters earned spots on the U.S. team that will compete in the world shoot.

“It's obviously not as big as the Olympics, but in compound archery it's one of the biggest shoots you can go to,” Williams said of the World Archery Indoor Championships, scheduled Feb. 25-March 2 in Nimes, France.

Compound bows are not allowed in the Olympic Games. Williams has won more than 50 state and national archery tournaments in her lifetime.

Before competing in France, Williams will try to defend her world title from a year ago at the National Field Archery Association's World Archery Shoot in Las Vegas, scheduled Feb. 6-9.
