Student’s had been practicing every Friday since November, she said.

“For some, this was their first archery shoot competition,” she said. “The archers all did very well.”

During competition, they took part in the bull’s eye shoot which consists of shooting three rounds of five arrows at a target at 10 meters and then three rounds of five arrows each at 15 meters.

For the first time, the club took part in a 3D shoot which consists of shooting five arrows at various animal targets, Bielecki said.

Darren Kitsch is also a KCI archery coach, and Javan Davis is the club’s community coach.
