Success in Archery

Congratulations to Jack Turner in 8J who recently secured a place on the Northern Ireland National Junior Archery Squad. Jack has been a member of Lisburn Archery Club for 2 years and was scouted by a member of the Northern Ireland Archery Society. Following this he attended a talent identification day and Jack was offered a place on the squad due to him showing great potential. He recently had the opportunity to meet and have a class lesson with Rebecca Lennon, Commonwealth Champion, Lloyd Brown, the coach of the GB Olympic team and Patrick Huston who had just returned from the Rio Olympics. Jack’s aim, with the support of the academy, is to reach Olympic potential in the future. All at RBAI wish him well and hope he is on target!
