Deer Park Archers Break In

At the recent European Grand Prix in Bucharest, Romania athletes from Deer Park Archers in Gloucestershire performed extremely well.

Compound woman Lucy Mason was successful in securing a European Games Quota place in the gold medal match against Janine Meissner (GER) who scored 143, Lucy tying the match at 143 but unfortunately narrowly missing out in the shoot off.

Lucy Mason along with fellow Deer Park athlete Ella Gibson and Jersey’s Lucy O’Sullivan came away with the silver medal from the match against Estonia losing out 225 to 222.
