Rapids Archery JOAD archers enjoyed great field archery success during the 2018 outdoor season. In two separate competitions, the NFAA Midwest Outdoor Sectional and MAA/NFAA State Field Championship, our JOAD athletes earned many podium finishes and set numerous state records.
At the NFAA Midwest Sectional at Rapids Archery Club, nine members of our JOAD team took seven podium finishes with three in 1st place, two in 2nd place, and one in 3rd. In addition, Jack, George, Caleb, and Callie set or tied eight state records.
In July at the state field archery championship, eight JOAD team members took eight podium finishes with five in 1st place and three in 2nd place. Nine more state records fell to George, Caleb, Jeremy, Callie, and Kevin.
With the end of the field archery season, our attention turns to outdoor target archery and preparations for the state JOAD outdoor championship and Voyageur Cup in August.
