Archery League!

Hey All!

As you should know we’ve started up our intraclub league! You can submit scores here

Hopefully all the information you’ll ever need on the matter can be found here.

Remember its not about winning but it’s a great way to see your scores improve through the year. Don’t think of it as a competition, think of it as a record for how you’re doing.

BUCS Outdoors Sees Out 2011/2012

Situated right at the end of summer term, the BUCS outdoor championships provide the grande finale for the university archery year. And with one of our best results ever at this level, we certainly did it in style!

Senior team came 6th (Joint highest result in the club’s history!) with the novice team in 11th as the highest placed NEUAL team. Congratulations to everyone for a great performance, despite the awful weather!

And so, the 2011/12 season is over. There have been some great performances throughout, but the highlights surely have to be Roses and NEUAL outdoors. Well done & massive thankyou to all that contributed to such a successful year.

NEUAL Indoor Championships 2012

Yesterday saw the NEUAL champs in Liverpool, full results of which can be found here. Despite an impressive team score of 2202 (averaging over 550 per archer!) the senior team were narrowly beaten by Sheffield, but were still able to claim 2nd place. A good effort from the novice team secured 6th, respectable against some of the highest novice scores seen in NEUAL.

Individual results were also very strong with medals won by Matt Evans (2nd, longbow) and Mat Tripp (3rd, barebow). We also took 4th, 5th and 7th in senior male recurve (Matt McCormack, Kevin Toutain, and Mat Smith respectively), 4th place in senior female recurve (Sally Morris) and 4th place in novice female recurve (Laura Bestwick). If only there were medals for 4th place we’d have quite a haul!

Well done to everyone that shot, Lancaster was well represented this year!
