Faith Cook is part of the junior girls archery team
which will compete in Italy in September
Shorecrest student Faith Cook will represent the United States in Cortina, Italy for the World Field Archery Championships in September.

Faith, who will be a senior at Shorecrest this September, secured one of the top three spots at the US team trials last weekend, after three days of competition.

She was part of an all Washington victory for junior girls as three Washington locals filled the recurve junior women’s team: Erin White, Faith Cook and Arianna Santiago.

The top eight archers in each adult and youth division competed at eight targets with running cumulative scores from the first two days of U.S. National Field Championships. Cuts were then made to the top four archers in each category and they finished with four more targets of competition to finalize each three-person team.

There is no funding for archers, so each member of the team must pay their own expenses to the competition. A GoFundMe page has been set up to help Faith and her family.

The page chronicles her challenges over the competition, including forgetting part of her equipment and having problems with the borrowed equipment.

In competition, nerves got the best of her. She lost some key matches and fell in the standings. Finally, on the third day, she pulled herself together and finished in first place.

Complete results from the trials are available here. For more, follow USA Archery on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
