At the Westerner Park, the recurve and compound competition took place in Archery, and Aaron Cox, 19 of Devon, AB shot his arrows to a silver medal position. Cox is a returning athlete from the 2015 Canada Winter Games, where he had placed in the fourth position in the individual event and silver medallist in the team event.

He qualified for the second round with the best score of 1162 points in qualifying round, benefiting from a bye in the second round of the single elimination format. Cox quickly moved onto the third round with a 6-0 win over his opponent from Prince Edward Island, qualifying him for the semi-finals. Facing Adam Deane of British Columbia, Cox scored the 6-2 win to advance to the ultimate match of the tournament.

With the gold medal on the line, Cox was edged 6-4 by his Saskatchewan rival Hunter Chipley, earning the silver medal for Team Alberta.

The Archery competition resumes on Friday with the Team Events.
