DARRINGTON, WA Team Hoyt’s Pro Shooters made their presence known at the recent NFAA Outdoor Nationals, winning a handful of gold and silver medals and breaking a few records in the process.
In the Men’s Pro division, Jesse Broadwater edged out Hoyt teammate Dave Cousins to win the gold. Both Broadwater and Cousins shot perfect 560s during the tournament’s hunter round. For Cousins, his 560 marked the second hunter round ace of his career. Broadwater’s perfect mark made him only the fourth shooter ever to accomplish the amazing feat.
Hoyt Pro Shane Wills took the fourth spot, and Rob Morgan and Josh Schaff claimed top-ten finishes for Hoyt. Also of note is Dean Pridgen’s gold medal-winning run in the Master Senior Freestyle division.
In the Women’s Pro division, Jamie Van Natta and Erika Anschutz battled for the top spot, with Van Natta getting the upper hand during an intense shoot-off. The duo’s tying overall scores in the regular rounds broke the former Outdoor National record, and Anschutz’s hunter round score broke the longstanding record set by Hoyt Pro Nancy Zorn in 1995.
The Outdoor Nationals is a grueling competition that tests the wits and endurance of even the most skilled shooters. The mixed format consists of two NFAA field rounds, two NFAA hunter rounds and one NFAA animal round all shot over the course of five days.
