Ebbsfleet Academy took a team of 16 archers to JNOC (Junior National Outdoor Championships) at the National Sports Centre in Shropshire. The team shot 288 arrows over the weekend. It was an excellent competition with the team coming away with several medals:
- Maetha – Ladies Under 14 Metric 4 – Bronze medal
- Gurmehar – Gents Under 16 Metric 2 – Bronze Medal and Gents Under 16 Bristol 2 – Bronze Medal
- Albert – Gents Under 16 Metric 2 – Silver Medal & Gents Under 16 Bristol 2 – Silver Medal
- Harvey – Gents Under 18 Metric 1 – Silver Medal & Gents Under 18 Bristol 1 – Silver Medal
The boys who took silver and bronze medals home did so only behind the national record holders for their categories!
Ms Horn said ‘I was very proud of our students, both for their archery skills and for their conduct throughout the weekend. One judge called them “the politest children he has ever worked with”.‘
The team are looking forward to building on their success at the next competition which will be the Junior National Indoor Competition which takes place in December.
