Archers took to the trails around the biathlon facility Sunday for the 3D Archery Yukon Championships.

The competition involved moving from station to station along the trails and shooting at life-size targets made of hardfoam that were placed in the bush off the trails.

In the bare bow pee wee category for nine-year-olds and under, Noah Dumaine finished with 241 points, as the only archer in the category.

Augustine Belisle-Greetham finished first in the pre-cub category for bare bow archers 12 and under with 269 points and Dharma Huff was second with 97 points.

In the cub category for 14 and under, Juliette Belisle-Greetham finished first with 166 points followed by Wyatt Kapaniuk with 80 points and Mitchell Rudolph with 76 points.

Emma Tom Tom, the lone archer in the cadet class for 17 and under, finished with 73 points.

In the bare bow class for senior archers, Adam Easton finished first with 215 points, Philip Christoff was second with 155 points and Tom Stuart was third with 101 points.

Rob Ingram, the lone archer in the master-60 class, finished with 197 points.

In the pre-cub category for archers using compound bows, Emmett Kapaniuk finished with 256 points.

In the cadet class, Sofija Jewell finished first with 288 point and Seth Chief was second with 268 points.

Alan Hansen, the lone archer in the master category for compound bows, finished with 366 points.

Sarah Walz of the Yukon Aboriginal Sport Circle explained this morning the 3D competition wrapped up the Sport Circle’s summer season.

They’ll now be moving indoors at Takhini Elementary School for the regular winter season which involves classes for youth every night of the week, with a slot set aside for adults every Sunday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Walz pointed out the Whitehorse Archery Club also provides opportunities for shooting a couple of nights a week at the Takhini Elementary, after the sessions for youth hosted by the Aboriginal Sports Circle.

The Sport Circle will be hosting it’s first indoor tournament on Dec. 22, Walz said.
