3D archery returns

Langley Rod and Gun club is hosting its second flatfield shoot on Sunday, Sept. 22.

Archers can test their skills against a variety of life-size (and larger) targets.

The popular sport allows archers to target replica animals ranging from the real to the whimsical, from bears and deer to dinosaurs, bugs and “jackelopes.”

A volleyball bronze win

A former Trinity Western University (TWU) Spartan was a big part of Team Canada winning bronze against Mexico in a 3-0 sweep Saturday at the Men’s 2019 NORCECA Continental volleyball championships in Winnipeg.

Spartan alumni Ryan Sclater was the top individual contributor for Canada with 17 points.

Spartans Lucas Van Berkel and Daniel Jansen Vandoorn also played for Canada.

Head coach Glenn Hoag said the team was “really well focused.”

“Now the challenge is for the guys to go to their clubs and stay healthy for January when we face Cuba, Mexico and Puerto Rico again [in the Continental Olympic Qualifier].

Cuba won the gold-medal match over the United States, who took home silver.
