Geraldton continues to be on the mark in the field of archery after Greenough Archery Club members took home a haul of titles from the recent State championships.

The club sent a squad of nine archers to the 3D State Titles at the Western Plains Archers Club in Roleystone.

The titles saw archers traverse the Perth Hills across the weekend, shooting at realistically printed animal targets, with Greenough proving once again they’re the envy of the State.

Four of the squad’s shooters came away with first place, with one second and three third places. Fifth place was the worst result for the squad.

Daniel Berry, who took home third place in his division, said the squad did well to overcome foreign conditions.

“The course layout is very different to Greenough as we don’t have many trees, but the course at Roleystone is in a reserve which is all really tall trees,” he said.

“The rocky ground was a challenge as you ran the risk of breaking arrows if you missed the targets but thankfully we didn’t miss too many.”
