HT Archery 2016
I recently interviewed Marina S. and Sierra S., eighth graders on the Holy Trinity Archery Team. Sierra and Marina both agreed that archery is a great way to make new friends and socialize with people you wouldn’t normally interact with. They also said that the coaches, Mr. Wiley and Mr. Brust, try their best to fix your mistakes and help you perform better. Marina then explained what they do during practice, saying, “We first set up the equipment and then take turns shooting arrows. While we are waiting for our turn, we watch other people shoot, and learn from their mistakes.” Sierra explained, “Archery is a great learning experience and it allows you to try a new sport that you wouldn’t normally try.” The HT Archery Team gives an opportunity to seventh and eighth graders to learn how to work competitively, focus while under pressure, and socialize with others.

As you may already know, Holy Trinity is introducing archery as one of their new sports. The students will learn basic techniques on how to handle the bow as well as how to hold the bow. This is the first time that Los Angeles schools will be able to go head to head with archery and compete in the FIYA league. The team will have up to 25 students, so be sure to practice! Thanks everybody, and remember - safe shooting!
Archery’s made the Playoffs
By: Stevie Hurtado
Holy Trinity’s first ever archery team is doing great. So far the team is undefeated and continues to win. Some of the best people on the team are new to archery. Sadly archery is coming to end as the playoffs approaches. In the playoffs only 10 people out of the 25 on the team can make it to playoffs. Let’s shoot for the gold.
