When LCA started the Archery program several years ago, coach Carisa Chaney immediately saw the potential of, not only the sport, but as LCA being the perfect venue for a major tournament. Thus the "Eagle Classic" was born. The Rose Campus gyms provide and excellent venue because they are adjoining and the mezzanine in between allows for hospitality rooms and officials to see both gyms easily. The school hosted the 2016 National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP) Regional when a little more than 1,100 archers competed.
Five years later, Coach Chaney and the LCA archery parents have turned the Eagle Classic into one of the biggest and most successful archery tournaments in the state.
This year, coach Chaney had to add flights and eventually still had to turn teams away. In all, 988 archers competed this weekend from all over the state, as they prep for the upcoming NASP regional, state and national competitions.
The event is a fundraising mechanism for the program, and many thanks go out to Coach Chaney and the tireless efforts of LCA's archery parents for its continued growth and excellence.
