Team Hoyt shooters dominated yet another target archery competition this weekend as the USAA inaugural Nor’easter competition was held in Massachusetts.
For Hoyt Recurve’s Jake Kaminski, it was another Gold medal for the season with his Formula bow- Gold Medal #25 for the season for Formula- taking a decisive victory at the Nor’easter in Massachusetts. Hoyt’s Karen Scavotto, last year’s National Champion, took silver in a tightly contested final after placing first in qualification. Hoyt’s Butch Johnson also shot his Formula F3 to first place in qualification, marking his return to the top of the leader board after taking some time off from major events earlier this season.
On the compound side, it was a total Hoyt gold medal sweep, with Hoyt shooters taking 4 of 6 medals.
Jesse Broadwater and Erika Anschutz stormed to the top of their respective division podiums with brilliant displays of accuracy. Broadwater defeated his opponent in set play 6-2, while Anschutz dominated 7-3.
Ben Cleland took a solid third place finish in an exciting shootoff, while Jamie Van Natta battled Christie Colin to win the bronze medal.
On the other side of the world, The Asian Archery Federation’s 3rd leg of the Asian Grand Prix in Taipei City, Chinese Taipei, saw Hoyt’s Jacob Wukie taking the bronze medal in a razor-sharp match that went to a shootoff. When the dust cleared Jacob and his Formula had the upper hand, with a single shootoff arrow closer to the center than his opponent.
Earlier in the event, Jacob and teammate Brady Ellison, who earlier set a new STAR FITA record in qualification, took the silver medal in the team round.
