National Indoors 2014

On Sunday 7th December 2014 Petra ventured up to Coventry to shoot at the National Indoor Championships against some of the country’s best in the FITA 18 competition and following Head to Head elimination matches.

This time she was not wearing a Ditchling shirt, but an England shirt, as she was selected to be part of the team to represent England at the Home Nations event on the same day. We believe this is a first for Ditchling Archery Club.

Her seeding match qualifier was a slight disappointment at placing 23rd, despite being up from 31st on last year. However, she was part of the winning England team in the Home Nations result.

Petra went on to find her form in the head to head elimination matches, successfully making it through from the last 32 to the last 16 after a five set tie and a one arrow shoot off to determine the winner of the match. Petra took the final 16 match to the full five sets, but lost it on the final set by three low red eights, when previously they were high yellow.

Petra finished in joint ninth – many congratulations, and on the England selection.
