Penn College Archers Set To Host Big Event

While Pennsylvania College of Technology baseball, softball, men’s golf and men’s tennis teams posted victories last week, the college’s archers are getting set to host their only home event of the year — the East Region Outdoor Collegiate Championships this Saturday and Sunday — and coach Chad Karstetter has high hopes for his squad.

“We have been working very hard outside, even though the weather has not cooperated and spring does not seem to be here yet,” Karstetter said early last week.

“Overall, the team looks very strong and I believe it will show at our event,” Karstetter said, adding, “We are looking forward to having a home event this year. It’s nice to have the home-field advantage.”

About 120 archers from a dozen colleges or universities are expected to participate during competition on the athletic field next to the college’s field house. Registration will be held from 10 a.m.-noon on Saturday, April 21, with practice beginning immediately afterward. Divisions include men’s and women’s compound, recurve, bowhunter and barebow. Qualifying, with 72 arrows each, will be held during the afternoon prior to the mixed team rounds at 4 p.m.

Action continues at 8 a.m. on Sunday, April 22, with practice followed by individual head-to-head elimination and medal rounds. After a break for lunch at noon, official team rounds will begin at 1 p.m.
