ANDERSON, IN Hoyt Pro Staffer
Alicia McHenry a regular on IBO podiums and one of the toughest
3D competitors in the country walked away with a gold medal at the recent IBO World Championships. The course tested the mettle of the country’s top shooters, but in the end, McHenry maintained a four-point lead to edge out the second place shooter and head home with yet another IBO title. The victory expanded McHenry’s already impressive resume and bolstered her status as arguably the most decorated female 3D shooter of all time.
Hoyt’s recurve shooters also had reason to celebrate, as a quartet of Hoyt Pro Recurve Shooters made sweet string music and found their way to the podium. Randy Irvine held onto a commanding margin to convincingly win the gold medal, while Hoyt teammates Kenton Steinke, Jim Powell and Scott Young stacked the leader board for Team Hoyt with second, third and fourth place finishes, respectively.
Also of note is the solid shooting of Ken Lantz a member of Hoyt’s National Shooting Staff who won gold in the Men’s Semi-Pro division with a score that would’ve earned him a silver medal in the Men’s Pro division. The win granted him a spot in a head-to-head shoot-off with the winners from all the other divisions pro and amateur alike. Lantz held tough and emerged victorious, earning the keys to a $10,000 ATV and the respect of all the pros he shot alongside. The victory sweetened an already stellar year for Lantz, who also won his division at the Nelsonville IBO and the IBO Triple Crown, as well as the IBO Shooter of the Year award.
Hoyt would like to congratulate its shooters for an outstanding showing at the IBO World Championships.
