Archers’ Success at Indoor Champs
22 February 2012
The Team Surrey Archery Club enjoyed a strong showing at the BUCS Archery Indoor Championships in Telford on Saturday, to add to a great week for Team Surrey overall.
Kathryn Evans came out tops for Team Surrey, recording a 2nd place in the Lady Longbow, closely folloed by James Daniels’ 5th place in the Gents Longbow. Steph Gooch came 9th in her Lady Compound competition, while Edvinas Cerniauskas came 10th and Robert Cieslicki13th in the Novice Gents Recurve. As a team Surrey came 22nd in the Recurve event and 31st in the Novice Recurve, despite only having two archer competing in comparison to the 3 put forward by other teams.
The weekend also saw two other Team Surrey clubs take to the road for national competitions. The Surrey Angels travelled to Loughborough for the University Cheer and Dance Championships. Competing in a field of 16 teams from universities up and down the country, The Angels finished in a very respectable 8th place. The Jiu Jitsu Club took part in the Randori Nationals 2012 and brought home two medals thanks to great performances by Viven Rohwedder (silver) and Julia Lazareva (bronze). Ellie Brodie and Ben Sparrow both came close to medals in 4th place, while Serif Omer and Anastasia Chaziladou came 5th in their events.
