Junior Masters show how it’s done!

August 7th 2017

Seventy of our finest young archers lined up at the 2017 Junior Masters in Oxford with only one goal on their minds: to be named champion of champions.

The format was simple: a 72-arrow ranking round followed by head to heads. It resulted in some spectacular shooting, particularly from barebow archer Lidia Stamp whose 549 in the under 12s’ 30-metre ranking round smashed the UK record – by 101 points!

After a day of tough competition in blustery conditions the 2017 champion of champions were decided. They are:

Boys’ recurve: Riley Spencer-Nice
Girls’ recurve: Heike Palmer
Girls’ barebow: Lidia Stamp
Boys’ barebow: Alfie Richards
Boys’ compound: Adam Carpenter
Girls’ compound: Sarah Moon

Tournament Organiser Nat Merry said: “The day went very well, with some very impressive scores posted despite the wind in the second half of the ranking round. It was great to see such professionalism and technical skill from our young archers.

“I have to thank Oxford Archers, and all the local clubs that provided helpers: Wallingford Castle, Oxfordshire Army Cadets, and Silver Arrow. Thanks also to our sponsors and suppliers and to assistant Tournament Organiser Chris Charlesworth. We look forward to seeing everyone back at Oxford for the Junior Masters in 2018!”
