With five ASA events already under their belts for 2013, archers competing in Metropolis were firing on all cylinders and team Hoyt was there to take part of the action.
In the Men’s Open Pro division, Danny McCarthy was the guy coming from behind with the momentum to sink a 12 on his last target to take the lead, ultimately clinching the tournament win. “I almost didn’t shoot today, I was feeling pretty sick. With the help of some fellow archers I was able to get feeling well enough to get out and finish the course and make up the targets I hadn’t shot. Winning the event after all of that was icing on the cake.” –mentioned McCarthy
In the Women’s Open Pro division, Hoyt’s Cara Fernandez shot the high during the 40 target qualifier. After taking the shoot-off to a seventh target, Fernandez finished up in second. “My Spyder Turbo is shooting awesome and I’m having another great year. I couldn’t be happier with my equipment and how I’m shooting.” –mentioned Fernandez.
The Senior Pro men had a first timer to the shoot-down round, Rich Calloway shot strong all weekend and in close points race finished up in with the third spot on the podium. Like father like son--Calloway’s son Andy Calloway dominated the Semi-Pro Division for the win and moved into the lead for the shooter of the year that will be later determined at the ASA Classic.
The fastest growing and most well attended divisions in ASA 3D archery have been the known distance. Hoyt shooter Stan Harmon led the pack in the Known-50 class and earned his first win.
Regardless of the tournament venue, Team Hoyt shooters continue to dominate archery tournaments worldwide solidifying Hoyt’s reputation as the absolute most accurate bows in the world.
