With a total sweep of Men’s compound, Women’s compound, Men’s recurve and 2 of 3 medals awarded for Women’s recurve, Team Hoyt has again dominated the USA’s premiere World Archery field event.
In the premiere men’s compound category, Hoyt Pro Staff member Jesse BROADWATER (USA), 2010 World Field Champion and Hoyt shooter Dave COUSINS (USA) and 2009 World Games Champion Kevin WILKEY (USA), Hoyt’s Pro Staff Coordinator, led the sizable men’s compound field to take the podium in first through third, respectively. The fight for second and third couldn’t be closer- Cousins and Wilkey tied on raw score- Wilkey had the highest 6 ring count (former X ring) but a higher combined 5 and 6 ring count awarded second to Cousins.
In women’s compound, it was Team Hoyt’s Jamie VAN NATTA (USA) and Paige PEARCE (USA) taking the top two steps on the podium, followed by Hoyt shooter Samantha NEIL for third.
In recurve, Team Hoyt’s Brady ELLISON (USA) and Jake KAMINSKI (USA) took first and second, while Philip BALDOWSKI took third with his Hoyt recurve. Team Hoyt’s Heather KOEHL (USA) and Hoyt shooter K.J. GRANVILLE took second and third, respectively, in Women’s recurve.
In masters men’s compound the legendary Team Hoyt shooter Dee WILDE took first place.
The NFAA Field and USAA Target Nationals continue in Yankton this week, culminating with the Hoyt World Open, where more than $50,000 in cash will be awarded to winners.
