Broadwater wins at Redding

REDDING, Calif. — Team Easton’s Jesse Broadwater, an

Allegany County resident, made history recently by becoming

the first archer to shoot 139 out of 140 — dropping only

one point — and smashing the previous record of five points

down, according to an article on The Archery Wire.

With distances that range from 4 to 101 yards and angles of

up to 40 degrees, the NFAA Marked 3-D is designed to be

extremely challenging. Broadwater’s arrows found 139 of 140

orange bull’s-eyes, giving him the win in the Western Classic

NFAA Marked 3-D National Championship.

“My Pro Tour arrows just kept finding center,” said Broadwater.

“I've been close here before, but it feels great to finally

get the win.”
