“We’re thrilled to have Dillon help launch Eagle Archers,” said Micah Davis, Carson-Newman’s archery coach. “I look forward to working with him as we prepare for Carson-Newman to enter archery competition.”

With collegiate competition starting this fall, Eagle Archers join C-N outdoor sport teams, Eagle Anglers and Kayak Eagle Anglers under with the University’s Intercollegiate Recreational Sports Department.
