Northborough archer wins national tournaments

Northborough – Cameron Hume, 12, won two national archery tournaments in March, setting a national record.

Hume uses a recurve bow, and is in the Bowman class for 12 years and under. Both tournaments took place the weekend of March 2 to 4.

The Junior Olympic Archery Development tournament for archers under age 18 was held in 12 sites across the country, and all the scores for different age groups and bow types were totaled by the National Archery Association.

Hume placed first in the country. He also set a national record with a score of 544 points out of a possible 600 points.

In a second tournament open to all ages, he scored 1,027 points of a possible 1,200 in two days of shooting. This score also was enough for a national firstplace finish in his class. He won both of these tournaments last year as well.

Some of his other accomplishments are a first-place finish in the Bay State Games last year, and he has won many local tournaments.

Hume has been shooting target archery for four years. He shoots at Hoops Archery in Clinton. His coaches are E.G. Lebre and J.R. Hooper.
