Two Cariboo youth archers were firing on all cylinders April 13-14 in Prince George at the B.C. Junior Olympic Archery Program Championships.

Williams Lake’s Cameron Brockel and Breanne Carlson finished with a bronze medal and a gold medal, respectively, at the competition.

Brockel’s bronze came in the hotly contested Cadet Compound Class while Carlson posted top scores for her medal in the Junior Compound Class.

Cariboo Archer and multi-time Canadian National Champion Al Campsall is the team’s coach.

Campsall recently learned from Archery Canada he’d set a new Canadian record for indoor target archery at the B.C. Indoor Championships March 30-31 in Cranbrook.

The Cariboo Archers in Williams Lake are now preparing to host their annual Outdoor 3D Shoot May 11-12 at the Williams Lake Sportsmen’s Association clubhouse on Bond Lake Road.
