Portsmouth, Ohio – Shawnee State archery competes for the first time this weekend, traveling to Kentucky for the USCA 3D Regional Shoot at Union College (Ky.) on Saturday and for the Mid-South Conference Championships at Cumberlands (Ky.) on Sunday.
3D archery is the first season of the year in the USCA. In 3D archery, shooters move through woods or similar outdoor settings, shooting at targets designed like game animals, such as deer. Archers move through the course and shoot once at each target, and score based on which scoring ring their arrows hit.
On Saturday, SSU’s archery team will participate in the USCA 3D Regionals, held at Sandy Bottoms Park in Barboursville, Kentucky and hosted by Union College (Ky.). This shoot will directly impact Shawnee State’s participation in the USCA 3D National Championships, to be held from October 25-28 in Foley, Alabama.
On Sunday, Shawnee State will shoot at the Mid-South Conference 3D Championships. The 2018 Championships are to be held at the University of the Cumberlands (Ky.), with a course set up on the All-Purpose Field on UC’s campus. This will be Shawnee State’s first opportunity for a Mid-South Conference Championship in archery.
Sunday’s shoot will be broadcast by Cumberlands on their Stretch Internet portal found here: https://portal.stretchinternet.com/cumberlands/
