Last Saturday saw a ten-strong team from UCC Archery Club travel to the latest I.S.A.A. Intervarsity at DCU. By now, all clubs are getting back into top form, and UCC archers faced stern competition from all sides.
Our Beginner group put on a strong performance as ever with Aisling Scully, Brian Conroy, Muhammad Yusuf MohdFauz, Brian Swayne and Shane O’Sullivan placing very highly – we’ll see them advance a category before the end of the season!
In one of the most competitive categories, Male Intermediate Recurve, Chris O’Leary and Captain Simon Henleywillis continue to move up the ranks, while UCC Guest shooter Shane Lordan placed in the top ten.
Our Advanced archers faced the toughest competition of the day. Andrew Egan continues to excel on Compound, while Katie Hamilton held steady as the scores got tighter to take silver in Female Advanced Recurve. Congratulations, Katie!
With the Christmas break shortly upon us, it’ll be extra training for everyone to keep up the form and return ready to take on the next IV in the New Year!
