More than 220 signed up for the Junior FITA Star on Saturday and there were some scorching results as records tumbled.
Lucy Mason of Deer Park Archers smashed through the 1,400 barrier and took the national Metric IV record and junior compound cup with a staggering score of 1,407. Chris Woodgate of Woking Archery Club took the Metric II record and the junior men's recurve trophy with 1,333, while Pip Taylor of Lichfield Archers took the junior women's 40m record with 1,269. Saturday's other national record breaker was Rebekah Lowe of Burton Joyce Archers who seized the junior women's Metric V barebow honours with a score of 1,169.
There were some family rivalries too. Kirsten George of Isle of Man Archery Club beat her sister Aalin by a single point to take the junior women's FITA Compound Cup 1,334-1,333. Jakob Barrett-Rhys of Blandy-Jenkins Archers beat his brother Finnlay 871-812 to take the Metric IV junior barebow trophy while their sister Grace took the female title.
England win the Home Nations challenge while regional junior recurve honours went to the East Midlands women and southern counties men.
On Sunday, there were 265 entrants and the conditions were a little kinder with fewer youngsters falling victim to the heat. Three national records fell: Bristol 4 junior women's compound to Lucy Mason, Bristol 5 junior women's barebow to Deer Park's Nicole Deasy and the Bristol 2 junior men's recurve to Chris Woodgate.
Chairman of the Junior Committee Helen Woodcock was the Lady Paramount. She said: What a fantastic weekend after the disappointment of last year. The standard of shooting has been really high and the behaviour of the archers exemplary. They have been a real credit to the sport and to themselves. I really cannot praise them enough.
"My thanks go to them, their parents and supporters and to the organisers of this fabulous event."
