MMC Passion Helps Archery Tourney Grow

By Rob Nielsen rob.nielsen@yankton.net


For the last three years, the NFAA Easton Yankton Archery Complex has been one of the sites utilized for hosting the U.S. Collegiate Archery National Indoor Championship. Paul Foss, president of the Mount Marty College Archery Club, and club coach Bill Hewes have been an integral part of it’s growth.

Foss said the tournament initially didn’t bring much attention to Yankton.
“The first couple of years it was pretty much only Mount Marty and Wayne State shooting here,” Foss said. “Now they’ve gotten (University of Wisconsin) Stevens Point and Mizzou. There’s a lot of bigger schools coming to Mount Marty to shoot because we have the access to this range and it’s just a lot easier to have a lot more shooters. The tournament just goes a lot more smoothly here.”
According to Foss, this year’s Yankton tournament, as of Thursday, had 43 participants signed up from colleges including Mount Marty, University of Missouri, Wayne State College and the University of Wisconsin - Steven’s Point. Walk-ins are also possible until the start of the event.
