National Champions Claim 2012 Titles in Ohio

Hamilton, OH - Competitors at the 128th National Target Championships faced extreme temperatures reaching a high of 109 degrees yesterday. Despite the heat and variable winds archers were able to shoot some impressive scores.

In the recurve division Brady Ellison won another national championship showing why he is ranked number one in the world. Five-time Olympian Richard (Butch) Johnson came in second place and unofficially beat his own Masters 90m world record. Jake Kaminski a 2012 Olympic team member came in third place.

Khatuna Lorig, who recently helped her team to qualify a spot in the 2012 Olympic Games, won the women's recurve division. Lorig was trailed by her two Olympic teammates Miranda Leek and Jennifer Nichols.

The compound men's division scores were extremely close in the tope three. Only two points separated first and second and one point separated second and third. Reo Wilde continued his impressive season by winning the National Target Championship. Reo has won 12 of 15 tournaments this year including three World Cup Stages. Dave Cousins came in second place and Garret Aberenthy finished third.

Erika Anschutz who is coming off a team silver medal at the world cup in Ogden won the women's compound division by 19 points. Anschutz's teammates who helped her win that medal, Jamie Van Natta and Christie Colin, finished second and third. Van Natta and Colin faced each other in the individual gold medal match at the World Cup in Ogden. Colin won the match in a shoot-off.

Each year USA Archery recognizes one archer per division with the highest cumulative score from the indoor, field and outdoor national championships. Compound archers are given the Easton award and Recurve archers are given the Shenk Award.

The winners this year's Easton Award are Dave Cousins and Jamie Van Natta.

The winner of this year's Shenk Award is Joe McGlyn. There was no female recurve archer that competed in all three events.
