Current students, Georgetown College athletics is starting an archery team set to compete in the 2017-18 school year. Coach James Dummer will begin his recruiting process and building his team in January. All interested men and women are invited to attend an informational meeting 7 pm Monday in the classroom in the basement of Davis-Reid Alumni Gym. It is important to be there as Coach Dummer assesses current student interest and experience. If you are unable to attend the meeting due to a conflict please email coach Dummer at [email protected].
There are three seasons with a mix of IBO, Olympic, team and outdoor during the fall, winter and spring.
Georgetown College athletics is excited to announce its third new program in five years. The Tigers will be grabbing bows and arrows and shooting for a new target – championships in the growing sport of archery.
"We have been tracking this emerging sport over the past few years and have a very good feeling about its potential to blossom and it's fit with our goals at Georgetown College," said GC director of athletics Brian Evans. "The national tournament for high school athletes and younger is in Louisville every year and similar to our decisions with lacrosse and acrobatics and tumbling, this just seemed to be the right time for this addition."
Currently 16 colleges compete in the United States Collegiate Archery Association – two of which are Mid-South Conference schools. Georgetown makes it 17, joining University of the Cumberlands and Campbellsville University as conference schools with teams. Nearby Midway University, Union College, Bethel University and Kentucky Christian University also currently compete with USCAA.
