Maintaining Trojan Archery’s Momentum into Outdoor

West Regionals Outdoor Collegiate Championship

Fueled by our success during indoor season, Trojan Archery ran headfirst into the outdoor season; for many of our archers, this would be their first time shooting past 18 meters. This year, Trojan Archery brought more archers to West Regionals than ever before – supporting a 16 person team full of Olympic Recurve and Barebow archers.

Between going up in draw weight, breaking arrows for the first time, and shooting farther than ever before, this transition often scares away new archers.

Members took aim at ghosts, Cthulhu, a six-legged spider unfortunate enough to find itself on the receiving end of our archers’ arrows for the second year in a row, and the ever-present tic-tac-toe … Continue reading Hello, My Name is Igor
