Carolina Murphy ranks top 25 in Archery World Championships

Carolina Murphy, of Langhorne, placed 25th in the world at the Archery World Championships in Las Vegas earlier this month. She competed in the largest and most competitive age group. There were over 140 competitors in her group from 10 countries all over the world. She finished second among all the US East Coast archers! Only a handful of points separated the top 25 archers in Carolina’s division.

“To give you an idea of how competitive archery is at this level, I’ll tell you this: in the equivalent male division, 30 archers turned in perfect scores, which is a 600. You can shoot a 599, and finish in 31st place!” says Carolina’s mother, Colleen Murphy.
