Pro TKD archers earn high marks at regional shoot

Ten Pro TKD archers journeyed to Colorado Springs for a Scholastic 3D Rocky Mountain Regional 2 day shoot last weekend.

Hosted by the Archery School of the Rockies at the Cheyenne Mountain Archery Range, compound, Olympic re-curve and traditional bowers were in attendance. This event, in conjunction with two other tournaments, qualify archers for nationals. At last year’s nationals, high school seniors received $3.5 million in college scholarships.

All 10 archers from the Roaring Fork Valley represented well with everyone winning trophies. Saturday’s event was all 3D targets with two rounds of 20 targets. Sunday’s competition featured paper targets at a distance, shooting 12 rounds of six arrows.

Tristan Slaver, 6, of Basalt was Pro TKD’s big winner with two first-place finishes. On Sunday, Slaver’s score was 434 and the second-place winner was at 200. The high score of all three divisions was 650 by a compound bow user.

Other members of the Slaver family also placed both days with Tiare, 9, recording third- and first-place finishes. Jason, the father of Tristan and Tiare, captured a third- and second-place finish. Claudia, the mother of Tristan and Tiare, placed first and third.

The Kiser family from Glenwood had a strong performance in Saturday’s competition with Jane, 7, placing first, while Banyon, 11, and Jackson, 13, recorded wins as well. Mom, Heidi, finished second. Jackson also won the bonus shoot and a $50 gift certificate.

Archery coach Master Doug Fuechsel of Carbondale took second.
