LAC LA BICHE, AB – Just two months after they hosted the Canadian 3D Indoor Championships, Lac La Biche is hosting the Selection Trials for the Canadian team heading to the 2022 World Archery 3D Championships. The event will also include an open event, for athletes not trying to earn a spot on the team but interested in shooting a World Archery 3D competition.

Trudy Dryden won the bronze medal in the individual instinctive women’s competition. Dryden, along with Monica Higgins and Miranda Sparkes, also won the silver medal in the women’s team competition.
