North Carolina Girl 2-Time State Archery Champion

April 22, 2006 by Hannah Joyce

My name is Hannah Joyce, a 14 year old and the only girl on the Hunter Safety Team at Forbush Elementary School in East Bend, North Carolina. My nickname is “Pinky” and I shoot a Matthews Solocam Mustang black cherry bow. I am the North Carolina Wildlife Hunter Safety Junior State Archery champion for 2005 and 2006. Last year I shot a 195/200 to claim the 1st place state title. Last weekend, I defended my position with a score of 198/200 to win the state championship for the second year in a row. Also, my team has won 1st place in the state competition for the past two years. We also took 1st place in the Youth Hunter Education Challenge (YHEC) in New Mexico last summer. In addition to being the only girl on my team, I am the only team member that shoots a Matthews! All the boys like Hoyt products, but after winning 2 state championships I proudly tell them to “catch me if they can!”
