CHULA VISTA, Calif. – For the second time in three years, the Columbia archery team reigned supreme by capturing Gold Medals in the both recurve and compound divisions at the 2017 National Outdoor Collegiate Archery Championships held on Saturday, May 20.
The Lions defeated rival Texas A&M in the finals round of the recurve to win the program's sixth national championship in the division, behind the stellar performances of Christine Kim, Bianca Gotuaco and Aileen Yu.
"Our hard work this year really paid off," team captain Joy Chang said. "Having our space (in the new Columbia Archery Training Center) this year really helped and we've had some great additions to the team this year with our new freshmen. It's exciting to see them making the world team."
