Lindsey Wilson to add Archery in 2018-19
Blue Raider Co-ed team will compete with MSC rivals who already have archery teams - Bethel, Campbellsville, Cumberlands, Georgetown, Kentucky Christian and Pikeville in the MSC
By Chris Wells, LWC Sports Information Director
COLUMBIA, KY - (Fri 5 Jan 2018) Lindsey Wilson College is adding archery to its athletic department beginning in the fall of 2018, Lindsey Wilson athletics director Willis Pooler announced today.
The addition is the first for Lindsey Wilson athletics since adding football in 2010. Archery -- which is a coed sport -- becomes the 16th sport and 26th program within the athletic department.
The Lindsey Wilson College Board of Trustees unanimously approved the start of the archery program during last October's Board Meetings.
"As we looked at expanding our intercollegiate athletics offerings, archery was always a sport we considered," Pooler said. "The more we researched the possibility of adding archery, the more it made sense."
Lindsey Wilson will compete in the Mid-South Conference, which adopted archery as a championship sport in 2017-18. Lindsey Wilson joins Bethel (TN), Campbellsville (KY), Cumberlands (KY), Georgetown (KY), Kentucky Christian and Pikeville (KY) in the MSC.
"We are fortunate that the Mid-South Conference already offers archery as a championship sport," Pooler said. "It made the decision to start archery that much easier for us. We look forward to competing against the other institutions in the Mid-South."
Archery contains three disciplines that are contested throughout the academic year. The 3D championship takes place in the fall, the indoor championships in the winter and the outdoor championships are contested in the spring.
In the Mid-South Conference, the combination of the three championships determines the overall conference champion.
"Anytime we can extend our mission to a new group of students who otherwise would not be here, it is exciting," Pooler said. "I'm looking forward to the positive impact the students and the sport will bring to our campus."
