Local archer Bryan Hardy finished in the middle of the pack last week while competing in the Canada Winter Games in Halifax.
Hardy, a Grade 11 student at Mt. Sentinel Secondary School, participated in the games for the second year in a row.
Competing at Halifax’s Sackville High School, Hardy finished third in the first qualification round in the recurve individual category, behind Brendan Sheridan of Alberta and Conner D. Sorley of Saskatchewan. In round two, Hardy was bumped into fourth as Jin Lee of Ontario edged him out of third place.
The quarterfinals paired Hardy against Cody Berube of Manitoba, and Berube finished first by a mere four points. Hardy ended up with a sixth place finish.
Berube ended up second overall, with Sorley finishing first.
Hardy also participated in recurve team mix, where the B.C. team was knocked out in the second quarterfinal against Ontario by a score of 217-213.
