Louisville—Trevor Becker was one of about 950 archers who took part in a national archery tournament in Louisville May 13-14.
“He is a very steady, calm young man which makes him a very good archer. He’s very focused and not easily frustrated,” said Larry Watkins, coach of the Crestwood Baptist Church archery team.
Becker, a member of the Crestwood Baptist team and a sophomore at Oldham County High School, placed in the top 50 among all males at the Centershot National Tournament.
“I’m very proud of myself for placing in the top 50 against players from all over (the country),” said Becker. “I’d like to improve my score in the future.”
In total, churches, schools and homeschools from 37 different states and one church from Saskatchewan, Canada participated in the tournament.
“He shoots on his school team and has been involved with Centershot since January,” added Watkins.
Crestwood Baptist Church placed top 25 among all schools and churches in the competition.
Becker is a second-year archer, having participated with his school last year and beginning with Crestwood Baptist this year. And archery runs in the Becker family. He has a younger brother, Trent, signed up for an eight-week archery class with Centershot beginning in November.
“Trevor’s calm and collected mindset help him stay focused on his goal, hitting the bullseye,” said Watkins. (WR)
