NUIG Intervarsity

The UCC archers were up early on a cold morning last Saturday to make their way to Galway City for the first intervarsity of 2015. The team started shooting not long after 09:30 and soon cast off the bleary morning sleepiness and got into form. Four of our archers set new personal bests and our captain Simon Henleywillis came away with 2nd place in male intermediate recurve, beaten to the gold by only two points. Simon has now moved into the advanced category after scoring 514 points out of 600. Brian Conroy, Sam O’Connell, and Brian Swayne have also left the beginner league and are now in the intermdeiate category after shooting 411, 403, and 408 respectively. UCC have two weeks to practise before the next competition, which is the Nationals Student Indoor Championships, the largest student event of the year. UCC are once again hosting the championships in 2015.
