CLAY CITY, Ky. – This past weekend, GAS Bowstrings archers were hit with a new challenge at the third ASA of the year, a brand-new venue at Camp Minden, LA. This venue did not deter GAS shooters, however, as many earned podium finishes over the weekend.
The first and probably the most nail-biting of all the matches was Kyle Douglas’s match in men’s known pro. Douglas had to shoot in a sudden-death shoot-off for first place. After the match was almost called a tie, it was determined that Kyle was a 0.0625 of an inch closer to the center of the 12-ring, making him the champion!
In addition to Kyle Douglas’ notable finish, Sharon Wallace made the most of her weekend as well. On day one, debuting her new GAS Bowstrings, Wallace was positioned in first after her incredible 16+, separating her 10 points from second place. Going into the final shoot-offs, she maintained her 10-point separation from second with an incredible 424. On her last arrow of the weekend, all she had to do was hit foam for the win and she hit a solid 10 making her the Women’s Pro Champion!
Chris Hacker also put up a great performance in the open pro division as he is getting closer and closer to achieving his first ASA win. Hacker went into the shoot-off matches with a 426 which qualified him in fifth place just under the fourth-place qualifier who also finished with a 426. Hacker needed to shoot a 14 to have a good chance at a podium finish for his final arrow. He did in fact hit that 14, which earned him second place.
Shooting a 416 in the senior pro division, Scott Darnell qualified in fourth place, just under the third-place qualifier who also shot a 416. Darnell needed to shoot a 14 on his last arrow to gain ground from the contender in fourth place who was two points behind and had more bonus rings. With absolute ease, Scott Darnell center punched the 14-ring, which earned him third place for the weekend.
A few other notable finishes for the weekend were that Paige Pearce continued her podium streak as she placed third in women’s K-50 with a 420. Rodney Greathouse secured his third-place finish in the senior known 50 division with a single point above third place. Finally, Madison Cox, who has been creating a name for herself in the world of archery, finished first in Women’s K-45 with a six-point lead on second!
