MAYS LANDING — Atlantic Cape Community College archers placed in multiple skills categories as more than 135 archers, including 27 from five regional colleges, competed in 26 age/division groups during the Annual Eastern Seaboard Archery Championships (Star FITA) on Saturday, November 11 and Sunday, November 12 at the Mays Landing campus.

Participants competed in Barebow (Recurve), Compound, Crossbow, Fixed Pins, Longbow, Para Compound, Para Recurve, Recurve and Traditional Recurve categories. Archers from Atlantic Cape, Rowan University, Rutgers University, Seton Hall University and the Pennsylvania College of Technology tested their accuracy skills in the competition.

Atlantic Cape Buccaneer archers placed in the following categories:


  • In Recurve Female, Atlantic Cape’s Madison Ventura and Cecilia Yang placed second and third, respectively.
  • In the Recurve Male, Atlantic Cape swept the category as Jared Lancaster, Canluan Wang and Badrul Alam Ruhin placed first, second and third, respectively.
  • In Compound Female, Brooke Kaelble placed second.
  • In Compound Male, Jeremiah Perez Lugo placed third.


One highlight from the annual tournament was the participation of Olympic female archer and Texas A&M student Casey Kaufhold of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Kaufhold is currently taking a break from her studies at Texas A&M to train for next year’s Olympic Trials.

Kaufhold, who just returned from the Pan-American Games in Santiago, Chile, reached out to Atlantic Cape seeking to compete in the tournament. Kaufhold posted an impressive 590 score out of 600, the highest among all 136 archers.
