COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado – The University of Pikeville in Pikeville, Kentucky has generously created a scholarship opportunity for the top junior finishers at this week’s 2018 JOAD National Target Championships. The top three male and female recurve, compound and barebow finishers in the elimination rounds of the JOAD Nationals will be eligible to accept these scholarships.
Over 700 of the most promising youth athletes across the country will compete in Raleigh, North Carolina this week for national champion titles. In addition, Gold medalists will be offered a $20,000 scholarship over four years to attend UPike, and silver and bronze medalists will earn $17,500 and $15,000 scholarships respectively.
UPike Head Coach Shane Hurt commented: “Recruiting from the JOAD program, I believe, will give the best-prepared archers in High School an opportunity to attend college as a USA Archery collegiate athlete. It will be a place they can rise to their full potential. JOAD has them ready to transition into Collegiate Archery as good, or better, than any other programs. They will be coachable and ready to compete right away.”
