Huddersfield New College’s elite archer Jessie Slater finished in second place at the Archery GB Junior National Indoor Championships.
Slater scored 560 to finish just four points behind the eventual winner, Team GB archer Bryony Pitman.
Slater, who is a future Olympic hopeful, pushed Pitman all the way to the last arrow.
The 17-year-old was ahead after the third dozen arrows, but during the last two dozen Pitman pulled back a few points to claim victory.
Slater took second place in the Junior Ladies Under 18 category, and overall third place for all age groups.
It brings to an end a very successful year for Slater, who also placed second at the Under 18 Junior National Outdoor Championships in July and retained her Yorkshire Junior Ladies outdoor title for the second year running.
At the county level Slater shoots as an adult, and has claimed eight Yorkshire records.
Slater is now ranked 10th in the UK as a junior and 53rd in the country as an adult, and next year she will be entering the UK’s premier archery event the ‘National Series’, which is a series of shoots taking place around the UK with the finals being held in Nottingham in late August.
Jessie is studying a BTEC Diploma in Sports and Exercise Science and New College sports teacher Alex Potts said: “We’re incredibly proud of what she has achieved inside and outside of college.
“She is a fantastic athlete, student and ambassador for New College, and with all her recent success I am sure that she will have an excellent career.”
