Last month, Trojan Archery attended the 50th annual USA Archery National Indoor and sent 24 archers to the Olympic Training center in Chula Vista, CA to represent the cardinal and gold!
This was the largest number of archers, we have ever sent to a competition on the national level! Many of our archers were first year competitors, and over half of our archers came up Peanut Butter and broke their Personal Bests during the competition!
Trojan Archery was able to shoot against collegiate universities from all over the nation at this event! Based on each archers performance, it can put them in line to potentially make the Collegiate All-American (top 10 archers in a division in the nation) or Collegiate All-West Team (top 5 archers in a division in the west). Currently, 15-20% of our archers are in line to receive these high accolades depending on their performance throughout outdoor season!
10! 10! 10!
10’s are the lucky number in Vegas. This past weekend Trojan Archery made the drive to Las Vegas to compete in the largest indoor tournament in the world, the Vegas Shoot!
This is the first time Trojan Archery has sent competitors in a number of years. Eight Trojans attended the event getting the chance to meet and shoot with USC alumni, collegiate archers, Olympians and Olympic hopefuls from all over the world (and our soot sprite Pedro had some fun out in town as well!). Congratulations to our archers who competed in flights and were able to walk away with prize money from their respective divisions!
