Archery Playoffs - 2015

FIYA held its second Archery playoffs Thursday at Frank Parent School. In a rematch of last year’s championship, Parent looked to dethrone defending champs Trinity. The match was extremely competitive, with the Chargers of San Pedro winning by the slimmest of margins on a one arrow shoot off that Parent needed to win to keep the match alive.

The eight schools that participated in FIYA Archery did so thanks to a generous grant from the Easton Foundation, and all eight participated in the playoffs. Leading up to the finals St. Anastasia beat Visitation in a ten archer, one arrow each playoff, while Parent beat WISH, Trinity beat Frederick Douglass, and St. Jerome took down Good Shepherd. In the semi-finals Parent outlasted St. Anastasia while Trinity got past St. Jerome, setting up their rematch.

Congratulations to all the schools and all the archers on a great season.

Holy Trinity - First Place

 

Holy Trinity is known as a football powerhouse, winning the FIYA championship this past fall. Frank Parent can dominate on the basketball court, winning their second FIYA title in March. But on Thursday both showed they are capable of more than just touchdowns and jump shots, advancing to the first ever FIYA Archery Finals.

To get there Parent had to outlast a game St. Anastasia squad, who forced a shootout with a strong performance in the singles round. After each school’s ten archers took their shot and the scores were tallied, a cheer went up from Parent who edged St. A’s 68-67.

Trinity needed a similar effort to get past St. Jerome in their own semifinal, and their depth proved too much for the Spartans to overcome.

The Finals did not disappoint, as Parent tried to avenge their one regular season loss to undefeated Trinity.  Both triples matches and each singles match were closely contested, but in the end it was Trinity who held on and claimed the FIYA Archery championship.

Congratulations to all the teams who participated this year and thanks again to our partners at the Easton Foundation for making it all possible.
