Well DSA, the 2017 Summer Sizzle is in the books.
It was a good tournament for everyone except for the broken air conditioner. Bummer! But it is called the Summer Sizzle for a reason!
The new sound system was a massive improvement!
Since the tournaments inception it has been a sell out and this year was the same. 98 archers registered.
Desert Sky Archers did an awesome job on the range.
Sam Lopez won the Compound Junior Men, shooting excellently with major string problems!
Claudia Wilcox won the Compound Cadet Women shooting amazing and incredibly consistently !
Teagan Severns Won the Barebow Cub Women, WTG!
Tatum Webb took 2nd place in Compound Cub Women in her first tournament, shooting her personal best scores ever!
Natali Heidt took 4th place in Compound Cadet Women, 4 points from podium, shot the second best scores at 18 meters. AWESOME!
Ryan Bachman took 10th place in Compound Cadet Men, personal Summer Sizzle Best and finding out he had a busted rest after the tournament!
Jaeden Walford took 11th place in Compound Cadet Men, he shot his personal bests at 25 meters!
Tatum, Ryan, Jaeden and Natalie (25M) shot outdoor skinny arrows to boot!
The tournament itself saw seven, thatâ€™s right, seven national records set.
