In April 1934, Connecticut State College hosted the national archery tournament and archers from all over the country battled it out on the athletic fields. Over time the campus grew and the athletic fields gave way to construction (Babbidge Library, Dodd Research Center, ITE, School of Business and Connecticut Commons) but the long tradition of archery remains.
Eighty years later in April 2014, on the Depot Campus of UConn, the UConn Archery team hosted the Eastern Regional Intercollegiate Archery Championships. At least two UConn archers qualified to move on to the US Intercollegiate Archery Championship which will be held 15-18 May 2014 in Long Beach, California.
Congratulations and best wishes to our Husky Archers as they move on to the national competition!
