3D Shoot 7/8/11

Namoi Valley Archers held a 2 round 3D event on Sunday with a big field taking to the range with competitors taking the last chance to prepare for the 2011 NSW State 3D Championships to be hosted by the club this weekend.

The day saw showers sweep across the range with competitors taking the conditions in their stride with some excellent scores posted including new club records from Stacey Scott and Haylee Murrell.

Tamworth archer and 3D specialist Brad Smith was in superlative form scoring a brilliant win in the Sighted division shooting with incredible precision on the testing layout. Gordon White was another archer in good form staging a very tense battle with Greg Scott grabbing second place by just 2 points.

Another Tamworth archer, veteran Neville White, scored a good win in the Compound division showing a clean pair of heels to the chasing pack to score a memorable win. Steve Jaeger and Wendi Murrell couldn’t be separated in the race for the minor placings finishing tied after the 40 targets.

Darrell Hudson showed he will be right in the mix for a State title this weekend scoring a fine win in the Traditional contest with Phillip Greenwood taking second with Peter Stubbs in third.

Lachlan Scott finished the day as the top Junior Sighted archer after putting together 2 fine rounds with Sebastian Donovan in second and Stacey Scott shooting well to finish third.
