A wicked snow flurry wasn’t the only storm brewing as Team Hoyt arrived at the Lancaster Classic this past weekend.
After day one, Hoyt Pros filled the majority of the top qualification spots in each class. Sadly, due to an unfortunate and uncontrollable turn of events that caused tournament organizers to change the way the event transpired, skipping the 2nd day altogether due to life threatening weather, and cut straight to the top 8 of Men’s compound shooters and top 4 of all other classes, there were still many red jerseys on the line.
Regardless of the changes made, Team Hoyt’s Sean McLaughlin, Brady Ellison and Zach Garrett swept through the final day for yet another all Hoyt Podium Sweep.
In Men’s Compound, as it so often happens, many fellow Team Hoyt shooters met early in the eliminations and had to shoot head to head.

After some great Men’s Compound matches, Hoyt’s Toja Cerne and Linda Ochoa-Anderson continued their hot streaks from Nimes and came in to win both the silver and bronze medals.

Not to be outdone by the other girls, Mackenzie Brown crushed the competition and added yet another Gold Medal to her name.

All in all, the Lancaster Classic was nothing short of a success for Team Hoyt. Congratulations to all the archers who weathered the storm and a thank you to Lancaster Archery for hosting the event.
