"This tournament has always been our first tournament and it’s done for a reason. It’s a good way to ease into the season. I am sure there is going to be good competition there but it’s one that I think they won’t have as much jitters and nerves going into that one as they would if it was some other tournaments that we do. Our season is designed to build. " - Derek Davis, Head Coach of Archery
Up next, the Lions will travel to Storrs, Connecticut for the Valentine Shoot on Saturday, Feb. 11.
