"We are so proud of the team," says MC administrator Jim Turcotte, who oversees archery and other outdoor sports. Shooting targets with bows and arrows is part of the weekly drill for Mississippi College's talented archers. "Our students have practiced nearly every day since the beginning of classes (in late August) and their work has paid off," Turcotte says. The vice president for enrollment services and dean of students, Turcotte thanks head coach Waldo Cleland for much of the team's success. Cleland "provided coaching and facilities for our team," he added. MC student archer Emily Hootsell applauds her teammates.
