ATLANTA—Three members of the Holy Spirit Preparatory School archery team were top finishers at the National Field Archery Association (NFAA) Indoor Championship in Louisville, Ky., March 16-17. This year’s competition featured over 2,000 archers.
Sarah Cullen, a junior, captured the National Championship cup in the Young Adult Female Freestyle Limited class. Adam Kendall, a senior, and Winston Zhang, a freshman, placed second and third, respectively, in the Young Adult Freestyle Limited class. Senior Caroline Suarez also placed fourth, just missing a medal by seven points in the Young Adult Freestyle Limited Recurve.
Freestyle refers to the use of sited bows with aiming devices (the most common form of shooting). Limited means the archers do not use a release, but they shoot in the traditional style with their fingers directly on the string, and recurve indicates an Olympic style bow.
Rochelle Rombalski, the head coach, started the school’s archery team in 2005, and they have been competing inside and outside of Georgia since 2007.
