See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Beloved, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appearswe shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is. And everyone who thus hopes in him purifies himself as he is pure. - 1 John 3:1-3
The LCA Archery program is fairly new at LCA, but it has quickly become a favorite of the students. Led by Head Coach Carisa Chaney, the program has consistently been one of the largest sports LCA in terms of student registration. With Jesus at the center, the future is exciting for this program!
Several years ago, Carissa took on the task of starting a brand-new athletics program at LCA. Archery was something that was taking hold in Kentucky through the National Archery in the Schools Program (NASP), but LCA was yet to have a program. After committing to begin a program, LCA was blessed to have Chaney in its midst. She immediately began building partnerships with other schools and recruiting LCA students to come out, whether they were experienced or not.
Now, a few years later later, Chaney's program has had exceptional turnout and has shown tremendous progress in and out of the competition venue. She has built this program to be competitive, and it is an enormous blessing for our student-athletes.
