H.S. ARCHERY: Long signs with Cumberlands

RICHMOND — The University of the Cumberlands (UC) Archery program is half-way through its very successful first season in school history.

The team has had strong finishes in both tournaments it has competed in thus far. Head coach Kris Strebeck said he hopes to build off this as he continues to recruit to make his team even better.

In that effort, Strebeck and the Patriots have announced the signing of Ryan Long, who will begin participating in the fall of 2013.

Long, a senior at Madison Central is the son of Winston and Julia Long. In 2011, he placed fourth at the NASP Nationals and first in NASP Region 9. In addition, he placed third at the 2012 NASP Nationals and second at the NASP World event. In 2013, he was named the Regional 9 Overall Male Shooter of the Year.

“The school is very nice, and the team treated me like family. I am excited to begin my journey as a Patriot,” Long said.

Strebeck said Long will be a nice addition to the Patriot program.

“Ryan has been very successful in the National Archery in the School Program (NASP) over the last several years. He has also been successful on the Archery Shooter Association (ASA) circuit,” Strebeck said. “He was also shooter of the year in his ASA class last year. We are looking forward to him joining the UC Archery team.”

At a Nov. 30 tournament, the 17-year-old Long also achieved something no one had ever accomplished at an NASP event before when he recorded the program’s first-ever perfect score of 300.

According to NASP President Roy Grimes, “during the more than 200,000 NASP competitions that have been conducted all over the world since 2002, Long is the first to achieve the score.”

Last week in the first-ever Kentucky High School Athletic Association State Meet, Long finished 13th after shooting a 293. He helped Central to a fourth-place finish in the team competition.
