The weather wasn’t the only thing burning in College Station, Texas this past weekend. Team Hoyt was on fire and came out on top with a full podium sweep in men’s Recurve, while Hoyt’s LaNola Pritchard and Mackenzie Brown brought home both Gold and Silver in the Women’s Recurve.

Brady Ellison, Jake Kaminski and Sean McLaughlin, each using the Prodigy series risers and Formula Quattro Limbs, blazed their way past the competition and through challenging weather conditions to the top. Each finished in the top 16 to continue on to the U.S. Olympic Team Trials.

Congratulations to all the archers who placed and continue to chase their dreams to represent the U.S. at the 2016 Olympics in Brazil.
