A Milton Keynes student has been named the county's ‘Archer of the Year’.
Denbigh School student, Yashasvi Yellapragada, aged 14, has been named Buckinghamshire’s ‘Archer of the Year’ for 2022 for her achievements in the competitive world of Archery.
Her achievements have seen her secure a place on Archery GB’s National Talent Development Programme.
In 2022, Yashasvi has taken part in 18 regional tournaments across the country through her club the Shenley Archers, winning six gold and three silver medals and setting eight county records along the way. She has also won Archery GB’s prestigious Black Rose Award.
Yashasvi also became one of the youngest archers ever to represent Buckinghamshire County, representing them at the prestigious ‘Tri-County Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire & Northampton Shoot Out’.
Yashasvi will be competing in Archery GB’s Indoor Junior National Championships in December and is definitely one to watch for the future.
Dr Andrea Frame, Headteacher at Denbigh said: ‘Yashasvi is a talented sportswoman as well as being a very committed student. We are so proud of her success, and we will continue to do all we can as a school community to support her in achieving her dreams of sporting success while maintaining her academic studies.’
