2012 USAT Members Announced

Colorado Springs, CO - USA Archery has announced the names of the members of the 2012 United States Archery Team (USAT), following a season in which team berths were closely contested. Topping the rankings for the Senior USAT recurve men was Brady Ellison (AZ), who also was the winner of the U.S. National Indoor Championships, the U.S. National Field Championships, and the U.S. National Outdoor Championships - titles which would also earn the winner an automatic USAT placement.

For the recurve women, four-time Olympian Khatuna Lorig (CA) took the first spot; Lorig also currently holds the third position in the U.S. Olympic Team Trials for archery, following the First Nomination Shoot. Jamie Van Natta (OH) took first in the compound women's USAT rankings, after a season in which she also won the U.S. National Field Championship and U.S. National Outdoor Championship. Reo Wilde (ID) is atop the compound men's standings after a record-setting season of his own.


For the Para USAT, Jeff Fabry (CA), who was part of the silver medal winning team at the World Archery Para Championships earlier this year, took the first spot for the W1 men's category. Russell Wolfe (PA) took the sole placement in the men's W2 category, while Joe Bailey (MI) finished the season atop the rankings for the open men's group. Natalie Wells (CA) was the first-ranked Para USAT archer in the standing women's category, and Eric Bennett (AZ) took top honors in the standing men's group, as well as qualifying in the men's open compound category.


For Junior USAT, Kailey Johnson (GA), Shannon Ostling (WA), Garrett Abernathy (SC) and Daniel McLaughlin (OH) finished first in the compound girls', recurve girls', compound boys' and recurve boys' categories, respectively. On the cadet side, it was Gabrielle Cyr (MA), Lauren Clamon (CA), Bridger Deaton (IA) and Christopher Luman (GA) who topped their categories' rankings.


"USA Archery congratulates all of the members of the U.S. Archery Team," commented Denise Parker, USA Archery CEO. "Reaching this level of success in your sport is an amazing achievement, and you should take pride in your accomplishments. We wish you the very best as you represent USA Archery during the coming season."
