THREE WOMEN TO SHOOT OFF FOR NATIONAL INDOOR TITLE FOR FIRST TIME IN HISTORY
For the first time in the history of Indoor Nationals, the winner of the Freestyle Professional Female division will be decided in a shoot off.
Liko Arreola, Paige Pearce and Tanja Gellenthien each shot perfect scores of 600 points with 120Xs to make history. These are the very same three women who also tied on perfect scores at the Vegas Shoot in February, with Liko eventually taking the win.
“No other girl has cleaned it before and we’re three girls who clean it this year, the same girls who did in Vegas,” said Tanja. “Hopefully we can switch up the podium spots a little bit but it’s going to be really exciting.”
At Indoor Nationals, archers shoot two rounds over two days. Each round consists of 30 arrows, split into 12 ends of five, for a total of 300 points per day. A combined score of 600 points is the maximum and only those who shoot 120Xs automatically move into the final shoot offs on Saturday night.
No woman had ever achieved that feat before this weekend. To continue, click here.
