Liberty University's men's and women's archery teams will begin the spring semester by competing at the Jan. 24-25 Lancaster (Pa.) Archery Classic. This will be an excellent opportunity for the Flames and Lady Flames to fix their sights and fine-tune their skills for the Feb. 28-March 1 USA Archery Indoor National Championships.

"We really need to focus and work on our mental game," said sophomore Hala Skelton, who has traveled to various events around the country representing Team USA. "When we practice for indoors, we are preparing ourselves not only physically, but mentally, because it is much more strenuous."

 "Hopefully, we'll have some really, really good shooters that will become that caliber of shooter at indoor nationals and outdoor nationals (Aug. 12-15 in Richmond, Va.), which is more similar to an Olympic-style setup," Liberty first-year Head Coach Ben Summers added.

Sophomore Connor Rothermel's silver medal in recurve and the women's team's fourth-place overall finish at the 3D Outdoor National Championships in Alabama highlighted the Flames' and Lady Flames' fall semester performances.
