BUTTS 2018-19 Leg 1: Loughborough

Posted by Megan Purchase on 14th November 2018

Hoping to continue the success of last year, the Warwick Archers headed to Loughborough University for the first BUTTS competition of a packed season. There were quite a few new faces as this years novices tried their hand at their first ever archery competition and new experienced members competed with us for the first time.

Team Warwick shot their way to victory with the Novice Team (Sophie Davies, Hubert Naguszewski, Ranya Younis, Alex Collins) coming third overall with a score of 1423 and the Experienced Non-Compound Team (William Pike, James Gardner, Enrik Nako, Sherman Ip) taking Gold with a score of 2313, a good 30 points ahead of second place.
