Sonoma State's archery club has come a long way since starting by shooting at (and sometimes missing) an arrow net in the school's field house. The club won a silver medal in the USA Archery National Collegiate Championship this weekend, it's first national medal since the club began only three years ago. And three of SSU's six archers were named to the USA Archery Collegiate All American Team.
More than 250 archers from 34 schools participated in the tournament at James Madison University in Harrisonburg, Va. Sonoma State's won silver in the barebow men's team category, shooting with a traditional one-piece style bow. The team just missed a bronze medal in the barebow mixed team, falling to Stanford in the third-place match.
