Texas Shootout Roundup

Practice Day

 

I was extremely excited about the Texas Shootout tournament because I was ready to use my new riser in a competition as well as see my archery family.  During practice I shot well considering the wind was pretty bad, so I was confident going into the tournament.  In addition to being not stressed about archery, I wasn’t stressed about school either because I have great teachers this year who actually gave me my homework in advance.  Anyone who knows me know that school normally stresses me out so much.  I think that helped my performance as well.

Qualifications

 

I started off really well and had nice people on my target so I was excited.  During the tournament, I shot really consistently despite not being in the center every time.  I ended up with a 504 with two 252s.  This was good because I am finally seeing my numbers go back up after so many form changes.  I placed 27thfreebirds2

 

Eliminations

 

Going into OR’s I was really confident because there was barely any wind.  We got practice in and it only made me more confident because I did well.  As soon as the whistle came on for the first end, I was ready to go.  I won the first (2-0) won the second (4-0) then I started to shake because I was so excited.  I was doing well then I thought my clicker went off when it was actually the girls next to me so I shot a 3 so my competitor and I tied (5-1).  This was it if I got this I would win.  I have never gotten past the 1/32 in a tournament before.  I stepped up to the line and shot three great shots and won!  The second match I was against my friend and I was excited about the friendly competition.  My shoulders had begun hurting around this time so it made it harder to rotate but I got through it.  She won the first two and then I was on fire and one the third putting it at (4-2).  She won the next end because she is a great shot and won (6-2).  I had a great time!
