A Class VII girl from P. Bonangi village hit the bullseye and got selected for the National under-14 archery championship.

S. Geethika of Sanskruthi Global School won a gold medal in the 30-metre event for under-14 girls in the Cherukuri Lenin-Volga Memorial Mini Inter-District Archery Championship conducted by the Andhra Pradesh Archery Association at Vijayawada.

She qualified for the National Archery Championship to be held in Vijayawada from April 9.

Geethika was interested in archery and took to the game at the school. When she was doing good within three months, her coach Lake Suribabu from Paderu honed her skills and helped her participate in major events.

Chairman of the school P. Suryanarayana Reddy appreciated Geethika’s performance and promised to support her when she participates in international events.

Three more do well

Three boys — S. Lakshman, S. Ramesh, and G. Mahesh — from the district will also participate in the National championship. Lakshman won the 20 M gold, Ramesh claimed 30 M bronze and Mahesh was fourth overall.

The four archers and their coaches — G. Lakshman and Mr. Suribabu — and manager P. Chinnam Raju were felicitated by vice-president of Olympic Association T.S.R. Prasad, secretary M. Syam Babu, president of the District Archery Association M.V.S. Prabhakar, and secretary P. Satyanarayana.
