Fall 2019 was a busy and productive semester for Trojan Archery! The fall semester is always an important time for training and preparing for Spring 2020’s indoor and outdoor season, and this year was no exception. In addition to recruiting new team members, we’ve made lots of positive changes this year in order to make our team one of the best. From implementing team workouts to coaching workshops, our team is making strides to shoot well and shoot strong! Continue reading Fall 2019 Semester Recap – Here’s to 2020!
As we transition from a glorious 2018 – 2019 archery season, the gears behind Trojan Archery continue to churn. Old veterans have stepped down from their administrative positions while new archers rise to pick up the flag. As such, we would like to give a big welcome to our new Executive Board and Officers for the upcoming 2019 – 2020 school year. We are confident … Continue reading What’s Next?
This past weekend, Trojan Archery attended the National Outdoor Collegiate Championships (NOCC) in Dublin, Ohio. This tournament brought together over 60 collegiate archery programs from around the nation and gave our archers the opportunity to compete in an environment they had never experienced before. The Trojan archers that attended the event, Aadi Ghildiyal, Dan Kwasniewski, Elizabeth Loxterkamp, and Michelle DeMers (all Olympic Recurve archers), shot in heat, humidity, rain, and wind. Despite these challenges, we are proud to say that our team performed well and fought on during qualification rounds, team and mixed team events, and single eliminations.
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.
Transitioning to outdoor season is not an easy process. We are so proud of the countless hours that each archer dedicated to making the jump from indoor to outdoor. 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. But as Trojans, we always Fight On, so it was unsurprising that a record number of Trojan Archery members stepped up to the shooting line and shot for gold.
We’re halfway through the Indoor Season, and our Trojan Archers have already amassed 17 titles! We’ve had a tough schedule here with two back-to-back tournaments at the very start of the semester. CA State Indoor Championships At CA State Indoor, Aadi Ghildiyal (left) became State Champion for Collegiate Women’s Recurve AND set a new state record! Daniel Kwasniewski became State Champion for Collegiate Men’s Recurve. … Continue reading Taking the Competition
