ASHLAND, Ohio – The 2019 U.S. National Field Championships was contested over two days at the Ashland Co. Wildlife Conservation Club. Archers traverse a beautiful wooded area as they compete at 24 unmarked targets on the first day, and 24 marked targets the second day. Unmarked means that in addition to judging the target face's size and angle of shooting, archers also must determine the distance they are shooting at for a great challenge.
Reigning world field and target world champion Brady Ellison again clinched the recurve senior men’s title with a 777, 93 points over Josef Scarboro, who is quickly building a name for himself after finishing second in the first stage of 2020 Olympic Trials. Masters 50+ national target champion Tatyana Muntyan claimed the recurve senior women’s field title with a 654.
The compound senior competition was a much tighter race, with Linda Ochoa-Anderson clinching the gold with an 826, just outscoring Paige Pearce’s 821 on the final day. Dave Cousins returns to top the men’s podium 835 over Tate Morgan and Steve Anderson’s 828s.
The barebow field was missing some big names as top competitors including John Demmer III and world field medalist Fawn Girard are on their way to Canada for this week’s World Archery 3D Championships. Claire Xie remains undefeated on the national stage; after making her national level debut last month, Xie now holds the titles of U.S. National Target Champion, U.S. Open Champion and U.S. National Field Champion – topping the field with a 632, more than 120 points clear her competitors.
Erik Schwartz and Charles Corbett Post were just a point apart in the barebow senior men’s competition, finishing first and second with 556 and 555 respectively.
The masters men’s categories also saw some strong competition, as compound target champion Greg White added another title to his growing collection, barebow legend Richard Stonebraker solidly locked up first and Gabriel Querol won the recurve gold.
