Holly Seaton's Archery Story
My name is Holly, I'm 13 year old and I'm a member of the Bowmen of Rutland. I started the Olympic sport of Archery in November 2015, after having a go on holiday in France.
I've been a Leicester & Rutland County Junior Archer for the past 3yrs, which I'm very proud of.
I've achieved the Junior Master Bowmen Award for the 2nd year in a row (2017 & 2018)
In 2017 I achieved the Junior Master Bowman badge, which meant I was able to shoot in the Junior Masters in Oxford this year (2018). I finished 10th for my age group, which I was disappointed with but happy , as I was shooting with a bad cold.
Last year (2018) I also achieved the Junior Master Bowmen Award, which was very satisfying as I had a very bad start to the year with some indifferent coaching and my draw length increasing by nearly 2". I'm now on the right path with help from Christine @ KG Archery.
Bring on the Junior Masters in 2019.
I have a large collection of badge's and awards from Archery GB, English Archery Federation, L&RCAA and Bowmen of Rutland. Including a Target Archery 6 Gold End badge in (2017) with my longest distance being 30m. I've also had a 6 Gold End this year (2018) at 40m.
I hold: 13 U12 & 10 U14 Bowmen of Rutland Club Records
7 L&RCAA County Records
11 EMAS Records
I am ranked 10th in the Archery GB Junior Award Scheme 2017 for all juniors under 18, this was worked out from my highest 10 scores for the year.
I have entered several Junior National Outdoor & Indoor Championships. Last year (2018) I shot a Metric 4 round on Saturday, beating my PB by 85 points and gaining a JMB score. On Sunday I shot a Bristol 4 round, also smashed my PB by a whopping 122 points and another JMB score. Over both days I shot over 300 arrows with both rounds being 12 dozen arrows plus sighters. I was up against some members of the GB Junior Squad, as well as English, Scottish and Welsh National archers. All this done in temperatures of over 30oC and shooting in full sunshine. GREAT WEEKEND
This year I am 1 of 4 L&RCAA Juniors to be picked for EMAS training squad.
One day, I hope to make the GB Junior Squad and represent my country.
