About 118 archers from the country’s elite schools had an opportunity to fight for honours at a recently held competition in the Erongo region with Windhoek Gymnasium dominating the accolade table.
The competition was hosted in Walvis Bay and saw most of the private schools who are dominant in the sport participating.
Windhoek Gymnasium saw three of their archers coming out tops although most of the archers who participated exhibited their prowess hitting a bullseye at least once.
Van Zyn Yohan from Windhoek Gymnasium was the top performer in the Boy 2D category and he was equally given a good run for his money by Lewis Johann male Elantan and Hough Pieter Male WBPHS.
The Girl2Dcategory was dominated by Adonis Alana from ST Paul’s college, while the other top performers in that category included, Delport Mia female Gobabis Gymnasium, and Erasmus Melany from BERG-OP.
AAN secretary general Karola Woortman added that the tournament was a resounding success. He added that the sport was also well supported by sponsors from across the divide.
However despite the sport enjoying quite a number of sponsors compared to any other sport codes in the Secretary General appealed for more corporates to play a major role.
