Lightning Crashes on Metropolis


Team Hoyt shooters came out of the storm shining...

Metropolis IL, Team Hoyt shooters came out of the storm shining at the Metropolis ASA 3-D event. Due to lightning strikes, heavy rain and high wind gusts in excess of 30 mph, the second day of the tournament was cancelled and the only the first day’s scores counted.


Hoyt’s Cara Fernandez lead the first day charge with a four point lead that ultimately won her the tournament.  Fernandez has been on a roll lately, placing at nearly every ASA and IBO 3-D tournament she’s competed in. Her stellar shooting also put her in the number one position for the shooter of the year award that will be determined after the final stop in the tour at the ASA Classic.


The Senior Pro division had a new comer to the class, Eddie Sullivan who typically competes in the Senior Open division, made his pro debut in Illinois and come off the course the victor with a commanding six point lead.


In the highly competitive Semi-Pro and Known 50 divisions, Hoyt shooters dominated their competition. Semi-Pro, Justin Bethel has been the man to beat all season. Bethel won his class with a four point lead marking his third victory of the season. In the Known-50 division three Hoyt shooters made a clean sweep of the podium, Marty Chambers, Sam Wolthuis and Shane Gillispie.


Whether you’re a pro or a Joe, Hoyt makes the best bow for you. Visit your nearest Hoyt dealer and see and shoot the same bows that pros use. Compare the quality in Engineering to any bow out there and you’ll see what sets Hoyt apart from the rest.
