The University of the Cumberlands (UC) Archery program is pleased to announce the signing of Jamie Bell to their 2012-2013 roster; the first ever Archery roster for the Patriots.
Bell is the daughter of Junior and Lisa Bell and hails from Somerset, Kentucky. Currently, she attends Southwestern High School.
Bell has had her share of success at Southwestern. Her team finished in 1st Place in the High School Team division at the KY NASP Region 10 tournament, 1st Place in the High School Team division at the Northern Middle School Archery Tournament, 1st Place in the High School Team division at the Burnside Elementary Tournament, 1st Place in the High School Team division at the Shopville Elementary Shoot, 1st Place in the High School Team division at the Meece Middle Tournament, and 2nd Place in the High School Team division at the PCHS/SHES Inaugural Tournament.
Bell said, "When I came for my campus visit, my mom looked at me close to the end of the tour and asked me what I thought. My reply was evident that I liked where I was and now I’m here. I hope to make an impact on the team in the coming years."
Head Coach Kris Strebeck commented, "Jamie is coming from an established program. They finished first at the NASP Region 10 tournament. She’s a really good student and I’m excited for her to join the team and continue her archery career at UC."
The archery team at UC will begin competition in the fall of 2012 as they will compete in the US Intercollegiate Archery Championships at Hocking College in Nelsonville, Ohio on October 19th-21st.
