“We are very proud of all seven of our kids,” said JOP coach Al Campsall.

The results are in for the seven Cariboo Archers who competed in the BC Junior Olympian Indoor Championships April 6-7 in Prince George.

Archers competed by shooting at several different venues across the province where the results are then sent in to the BC Archery Association for collation.

“We are very proud of all seven of our kids,” said JOP coach Al Campsall.

In just his first year of competition Kairav Khugsal achieved two personal bests at the competition and finished fourth in the pre-cub division.

Cole Schalles brought home first in the junior division, shooting his personal best and jumping up three categories to compete.
