Stettler youth among top Canadian archers

Nockbuster team hits the target

The Wm. E. Hay Nockbuster Archery team has four more reasons to celebrate an already great season. Along with both middle and high school teams placing at provincials, and individuals placing at nationals, the Nockbuster Archery team has four archers who qualified for the Canadian All Stars and Developmental teams.

The NASP (National Archery in Schools Program) runs in 14 different countries. Every two years each country can organize a team of its top 32 archers to form a developmental and an All Star team. Scores shot in provincial and national tournaments are eligible for the two Canadian teams.

Colby Barclay and Taylor Knudston have both qualified for the All Stars team and are now among the top 16 archers in Canada. Colby Barclay placed first for high school boys at nationals and Taylor Knudston placed first for Grade 10 boys at provincials.

Katlyne Glasier and Josh Morris made the Canadian Developmental team. They are now among the top 32 archers in Canada. Katlyne Glasier placed third for middle school girls at nationals and Josh Morris placed second for Grade 10 boys at provincials. This is the third time they have had students from the Wm. E. Hay program go to this international competition. In 2015 Will Roberts and Jessa Heatherington competed in Nashville Tennessee, and in 2016 Jessa Heatherington attended the All Stars tournament in South Africa where Canada earned their first Bronze Medal in both the bulls eye and 3D events.

Canada is hosting the All Stars tournament for the first time ever and it will be held in Calgary at Canada Olympic Park in the hockey arena July 9 to 11.
