AGB Youth Festival 2018
YAA archers achievements at AGB Youth Festival
Congratulations to our young archers who performed brilliantly at the Youth Festival this week at Lilleshall - Niamh Titchener, Tom and Mac Oakley, Luke and Hannah Stocks, and Dan McGarry who all train together at Arrowhawks Archery Academy in York.
They acquitted themselves well not just with the quality of their shooting but also their sportsmanship, positive attitude, determination and confidence.
Max Oakley (just a week after his 11th birthday) came away with an overall 4th place, just missing out on the individual bronze medal though coming home with silver and bronze medals in the team and mixed team events.
Brother Tom Oakley also came away with a bronze medal in the mixed team event.
Hannah Stocks took bronze in the compound cadet mixed team, finishing 9th in the individual event, and brother Luke Stocks took bronze in the cadet boys recurve team.
Dan McGarry took bronze in the Compound youth team event finishing 9th in the individual event.
Niamh Titchener narrowly missed out on the medal matches after a sterling performance, winning matches against GB archers Ruby Paul and Sophie Castle, finishing 8th in the individual event after shooting her way through quarter finals.
Great to see Yorkshire juniors in the limelight at such a major event.
