With an amazing win, the five member team representing the BVI claimed the victory cup in an archery competition held in Nevis over the weekend.

Hosted by the Nevis Archery Association, the competition commenced on Saturday, 17th December and concluded on Sunday, 18th December, 2016.

The BVI team was comprised of three students from the H. Lavity Stoutt Community College, one student from the Elmore Stoutt High School and instructor Ms. Winette Lawrence.

According to the college, the Nevis and BVI team competed in four categories, which included target shoot distances of 15 meters, 30 meters, federal-50 meters and field shoots that involved shooting at targets from varying heights while traveling through the bushy area at Mount Travers, Nevis.

Team BVI’s unique bow and arrow skills landed 4 gold medals, 3 silver medals, 2 bronze medals and the Nevis Challenge Cup.

Individual awards went to Adriel Singh (HLSCC) - 1st Place - 30 meters, 1st Place -15 meters ; Jahmaine Liburd (HLSCC) – 2nd Place - 30 meters, 2nd Place – 15 meters; Teandra Donovan (HLSCC) – 3rd Place – 30 meters; Shaniah Daignauth (ESHS) – 3rd Place - 15 meters; and Winette Lawrence (Instructor) – 2nd place - 50 meters, 1st Place - 15 meters, and 1st Place – Field Shoot.

BVI Archery Association President, Mr. Patrick Smith commented that the past weekend's event provided a much needed opportunity to see how the team would perform under pressure, now that they are preparing for a rating event in Salinas, Puerto Rico next year.

"From this regional competition, we can now see exactly where we are and what we need to work on for our next competition. Certainly, you’ll be hearing about us again as they continue to pull ‘em back and let ‘em fly," Smith noted.
