Garrison archers hit the target at B.C. championships

The Chilliwack club has endured a tumultous year, but its young athletes continue to shine.

Chilliwack’s Garrison Archery Club sent eight athletes to Maple Ridge for the B.C. Junior Olympian Indoor Provincial Championships, which were held April 8.

All eight earned podium finishes.

In the Male Barebow Yeoman category, Zachary Petraschuk’s personal best score of 231 earned him gold, wihile Jacob Steinebach earned third place with 151.

Frances McKenna-Smith took gold in the Female Barebow Junior Bowman category, with a score of 261.

Ethan Williams won silver in the Male Barebow Junior Archer category with 273.

Keira Peacock grabbed her third consecutive JOP provincial gold, with a score 391 in the Girl’s Recurve Bowman category. Trey Meier earned his second consecutive gold with a score of 364 in the Boy’s Compound Archer category.

In the Male Compound Master Archer Class, Sebastian Szegedi’s score of 415 won the first place spot.

Daniel Haddock took the gold in the Recurve Olympian 265–280 category with a score of 520.

l Two Garrison Archers, Haddock and Nathan Klop, won gold at B.C. Provincial Championships the previous weekend.

Klop’s score of 331 was good for top spot in the Men’s Barebow, while Haddock accumulated an impressive 1051 to win the Junior Recurve class.

“The club has had a challenging year, after suffering a setback early last fall when we lost our place to practice,” said Garrison Archers president Diana Nelson. “But thanks to the hard work of some amazing volunteers and parents, and lifelines from the wonderful folks at Charis Camp and Hoodstar Automotive, not only were we able to save the club, but we were able to thrive and watch these amazing young archers realize the potential we knew they all had.

“It just makes these results so much sweeter!”
