Wisbech Grammar School Archery Team had a very successful day on Sunday 11 February at the Cambridgeshire County Championships and Jolly Archers Competition. Nerves got the better of the team at the beginning of the competition, but they managed to overcome this and went for gold.
Thomas Fox (2nd Form) won Under 18 Gents Compound and therefore retained his Cambridgeshire County Champion title for Junior Gents Compound. Millie Oram (Lower 6th Form) won Under 18 Ladies Barebow and she is now Cambridgeshire County Champion for Junior Ladies Barebow. Amy Everall (Lower 6th Form) won Under 18 Ladies Compound and is now Cambridgeshire County Champion for Junior Ladies Compound.
Believing that Laura Wright (5th Form) was ready to ‘raise her game’, she was entered into the over 18 category by School Archery Coach, Sean Fox, providing her with the opportunity of competing against much more experienced archers. Laura won gold! She is now Cambridgeshire County Champion for Ladies Compound.
In addition, Thomas, Amy, and Laura also won gold for the Cambridgeshire County Compound team.
The team also competed in the Jolly Archers Competition which is open to all counties and not just Cambridgeshire teams. Once again, Wisbech Grammar School archers came away with impressive results. Thomas Fox won gold for Under 18 Gents Compound, Millie Oram won gold for Under 18 Ladies Barebow, Amy Everall won gold for Under 18 Ladies Compound and Laura Wright won gold for Over 18 Ladies Compound.
We are very proud of all our competitors and their new successes at this competition. They all demonstrated a high standard of archery and conducted themselves extremely well at the competition. We are looking forward to entering more cometitions this year. Sean Fox, WGS Archery Coach
