New C-N archery program targets fall 2023 for competition

Carson-Newman University announces the launch of a new archery program to compete on the collegiate level. Eagle Archers joins C-N outdoor sport teams, Eagle Anglers and Kayak Eagle Anglers under with the University’s new Intercollegiate Recreational Sports Department.

“The Eagle Archers will compete with USA Archery, shooting both indoor and outdoor as well as 3-D targets,” said Hunter Sales, director for the department. “This program marks the first of its kind in East Tennessee, joining Bethel University, the University of the Cumberlands, Lindsey Wilson College, Union College and many others.”

The new offering is a perfect fit for Carson-Newman according to Sales. “The high school archery scene is well-established and flourishing in communities just like ours,” Sales said. “Universities of similar background to C-N have seen positive benefits from introducing archery including attracting high-character students that retain at a higher rate than average students. Archery will help Carson-Newman to connect with our local community and attract new students to our Christ-centered education.”

Sales says the program will provide an opportunity for students to continue their passion for the outdoors alongside their peers while providing networking opportunities within the outdoor industry. Competition is slated for fall 2023.
