Alex Body is Double County Champion

Alex turns 18 in a few days so the Junior County Championship which was held this weekend (10 June) was Alex's last one.

The day was bright and sunny though there was plenty of wind but Alex battled through and took the win on the York Round.

He then came back the next day for the Senior Championship (11 June) and shot the York again but this time against the Seniors for the first time - and Won that.

Well done Alex - has the Essex Junior and Senior Championship been held at the same time by the same person before?

 

Alex Breaks Record Older Than He Is

Alex Body has been shooting well recently and at the Noak Hill Westerns it looks like he had a very good day.

It was blustery and we have thunder just before the start of the shoot but Alex overcame the conditions and shot a new PB.

It also is a new County Record (subject to ratification) for the New Western of 714 which beats the previous record which had been held for over 30 years by Richard Selway at 708 since 1983.

Congratulations Alex and I'm sure this is not the last time PBs and records will go this year.


Michael Joins GB National Squad

Archery GB has announced the National Squad that will represent Great Britain at major international events and show the world the quality and competitive nature of Archery GB's preparation and support programme!

The nine athletes have each proved they are capable of scoring at an internationally competitive level, as per selection documents published on the Archery GB website.

The squad is a mix of experienced internationals and new faces and offers huge potential to move forward and be competitive on the international stage.

The squad members are:
Olympian Naomi Folkard
Sally Gilder
Bryony Pitman (Bryony is still eligible to compete as a junior.)
Ashe Morgan
Kieran Slater
Olympian Patrick Huston
Tom Hall
Michael Judd
Alex Wise (Alex is still eligible to compete as a cadet)

Tom, Michael and Alex are making the step up to the National Squad.

David Tillotson, Director of Sport at Archery GB, said: "I'm delighted to announce the new squad. I do believe that the scores these archers have latterly begun to show will enable us to be competitive throughout 2017, building towards the World Championships in Mexico in October.

 

There is an exciting blend of youth and experience within the squad but all have proven that they deserve to be there and are ambitious to take this opportunity. As with all squads, I will be reviewing standards and performance throughout the season to ensure we achieve our goals."


Jess Sagoo

Jess Sagoo is really on a roll right now:

She won the Ladies Recurve in the January Challenge

Then she scored 592 in February.

She won the Essex Indoors with a PB.

On Saturday she won the BUCS championships for the second year running with another PB.

Well done Jess.
