The Masters in action
Saturday & Sunday was the UK Masters - National Tour Stage for 2023. Three of our archers took place in the competition.
Day 1 was sunshine and started with a ranking round followed by head to heads. Vicky finished 8th place in the Ranking Round. Then in the afternoon knockout stage - following wins against some top archers (including the number 1 seed) Vicky found herself in the Gold Medal Match! The final was a great battle against Izzy Carpenter with Vicky taking 2nd place with a score of 144 to 147. Not only did Vicky take silver, she also shot a new PB of 147 for the H2H rounds. Stuart finished 17th after a sublime performance against James Mason in a very close H2H match and James finished 33rd in an equally tight match against the highly seeded John MBE Walker.
Day 2 was a double 720 in really tricky winds, with many archers pulling out and failing to finish. The delco team persevered with Stuart finishing 5th, Vicky 12th and James 23rd.
Well done everyone! Amazing shooting
