Team Hoyt Shooters Punish Both the X-Ring and the Competition in Louisville.
Shooting the iconic NFAA 5-Spot blue-and-white target is along-standing tradition in the Midwest. The passion surrounding the challengewas more than evident this past weekend, as more than 1700 shooters showed upin Louisville, Kentucky to test their skills and equipment against the X-Ringin the second leg of the NFAA 3-Star Tour.
In the Men’s Pro Division, there was no room for error. ReoWilde, Jesse Broadwater, Shane Wills, David Houser, Mike Schloesser, SteveAndersen and Jacob Phelps – all shooting for team Hoyt – trusted the accuracyand forgiveness of their new Hoyt Podium X Elites to punish the X-Ring allweekend long, finishing with perfect scores of 600 – 120X. After an intense
shoot-off, Mike Schloesser, shooting the same Podium X he used to claim the
Indoor World Cup Final victory and break the Indoor Fita World Record,
outlasted his teammates to take the Championship Bowl home. Jesse Broadwater,
who is no stranger to this NFAA shoot-off, gave Mike a run for his money and
claimed second place.
Erika Jones, shooting her silver and green Podium X in the
Women’s Pro Division, punished the competition by shooting a perfect 60X 300 on
Sunday, separating herself from the nearest competitors and claiming the title.
This is Erika’s third NFAA title in a row and fifth overall.
Hoyt Archery congratulates all the shooters who competed in
Louisville this past weekend and wishes you luck at your next tournament.
