With the fall semester beginning, many students will be looking into joining clubs to partake in, and on Monday August 24, the Recreation Activities Center will be hosting a club sports fair from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. One of the clubs that will be featured is the Archery team.
Archery is a sport that requires precision and accuracy. The archery club here at GSU competes competitively and recreationally. The club treasurer Joseph Woods, junior information technology major, says that anyone can participate in archery, whether they are experienced, or are beginners in the sport.
“My dad and other members of my family would hunt while I growing up,” Woods said. “When I saw the archery club at my freshman orientation, I knew I wanted to join.”
The competitive team practices four days a week and use their own equipment. The recreational team practices once a week and gets experience on how to properly shoot. Last year, the competitive team participated in a many regional tournaments and placed in the top three in different categories.
This year they plan to attend more regional tournaments than the year before, and with the addition of the Shooting Sports Education Center opening in September, archery at GSU will continue to grow and expand.
