Marlene van Staden, Mayor of the Modimolle/Mookgophong Municipality congratulated Shannon Carlton with his Junior Protean Colours during an assembly of Waterberg Academy.

National Archery in the Schools Programme (NASP) Namibia recently hosted the 2017 NASP Africa All Star Championships and Centreshot Development Challenge in Windhoek. 

The countries competing in the championships were Namibia, Botswana, South Africa and Zimbabwe.

Shannon Carlton from Waterberg Academy at Vaalwater was chosen to be part of the South African team. Waterberg Academy, along with other schools in Limpopo, have been competing in NASP for the past four years and Shannon is the first archer in Limpopo to be chosen for the national team.

Marlene van Staden, mayor of the Modimolle/Mookgophong Municipality, congratulated Shannon during the school’s assembly on Friday, 4 August, during which he showed off his honours blazer for sport. 

This is the first time a learner at Waterberg Academy received an honours blazer for archery, said Mark Godfrey, principal of Waterberg Academy. 

Heidi Carlton, Shannon’s proud mother, and also the NASP Limpopo co-ordinator, added that it is also the first year in the history of NASP SA that Junior Protea Colours are awarded to the national side, as well as the first country to awarded the National Team with national colours.

Heidi told The Post that the Junior Protea NASP Archery Team is yet again the NASP Africa Champions in the Bull’s Eye and 3D categories with the addition of some individual medals including eight gold, four silver and six bronze medals. South Africa is the NASP Africa Champions in the Bull’s Eye category for the 4th consecutive year. The 3D category was introduced in 2017 and since the inception of the All Star World Championship in 2013 South Africa has been the silver medallist from 2013-2016. 

In 2016 it was decided that the All Star World Championship will be hosted every two years with 2018 being the next and it will be hosted in Canada.
