While the following information doesn't fall into the overall theme of this blog, I hope that my faithful readers (all four of you) will forgive me for the following post:
LITCHFIELD, CT – Youth archer Shayna Jenkins opened up the indoor archery season with a decisive win in her division at the Connecticut Fall Classic archery tournament, held at the UConn campus in Stoors, CT this weekend.
Jenkins scored 507 points out of a possible 600 in the 60-arrow tournament, besting her closest rival by 17 points.
Her score was also the highest for any female competitor using standard Olympic bows, regardless of age or division. In addition to individual entrants from throughout the region, the tournament included teams from UConn, Wellesley, and Brandeis universities.
This win brings Jenkins' winning streak into the indoor season. This summer, Jenkins scored a hat trick, capturing the state championships in Connecticut, Massachusetts and New Jersey.
