It was a gold and silver medal sweep for members of the Cariboo Archers during the weekend at the BC Indoor Target Championships in Victoria.
Lakecity archers made the long trek, and ferry journey, to the Island for the event, and made it all worth while as several club records fell, while one other record was also nearly beaten.
Ty Waterhouse almost equalled the cub compound record still owned by active youth archer Ty Thurow (1,092 to 1,095 points).
Al Campsall, meanwhile,e beat his own B.C. record by 20 points and, even more exciting, Campsall said, was one of his students, Joelle Thurow, eclipsing the cub compound record by 70 points.
In winning her silver medal, fellow Cariboo Archer Kylie Sharman established personal bests once again in her first year of archery.
The following are the complete results for the Cariboo Archers:
• Cadet Compound Male: Ty Thurow (first), Isaac Bedford (second)
• Cadet Compound Female: Kylie Sharman (second)
• Compound Fixed Pins Adult Male: Bob Thurow (first)
• Compound Fixed Pins M60 Male – Al Campsall (first)
