The Southeastern Illinois College Archery team will be traveling to Foley, Alabama, to compete at the U.S. National Collegiate 3-D Championships Oct. 4-6. The archery team consists of 16 team members and five guest shooters this fall.
On Friday, the team will endure an equipment inspection and will be allowed open practice. Following this, they will shoot a team mixer. Saturday, each archer will compete for an individual title by shooting a total of 40 3-D targets. This will be followed by an awards banquet and a mixed team fun shoot down. Sunday the team will shoot team and mixed team rounds.
“We have a lot of new talented members on the team this year. I am looking forward to seeing everyone work together at the team and mixed team rounds,” said SIC Head Archery Coach Alli Armstrong.
