Kinzie Thomas spent the weekend under the lights in Las Vegas. This was Kinzie's first time shooting at one of the largest and most recognized indoor shoots in the country. She shot a 575 with 18 X's. This landed Kinzie in 9th place out of 59 shooters in the Youth Female Freestyle Unlimited class. Congratulations Kinzie!!
Written by her proud Papa -
Kinzie had another amazing archery weekend. It was a three day tournament in Yankton SD. This tournament was a world tournament. South Africa, Germany, Austria, France, and a couple other countries were there as well. It was a 300 round tournament with all three days. Kinzie shot a perfect 300 the first day, she shot a perfect 300 on Saturday. Going into the final day, Kinzie was tied with 3 others with perfect scores. In the second of 12 ends, Kinzie dropped a point. Two ends later, a girl in the lead misses the whole target and hits two fours. Long story short, two girls tied with 900/900 scores, Kinzie and another girl from Florida were tied at 899/900. What next? A shoot off. During the shoot off they get 3 ends. With an X count. ALL girls shot same scores. Now we go to sudden death. Each archer gets one arrow. Best score wins. Another tie. Sudden death round two. Inside out ruling. Kinzie splits the X other girl barely cuts line for a X. Both tie. Sudden death round three. Archer closest to center of X wins. Kinzie was 1/4 inch right of X, her competitor was 1/8 inch closer. That is how well she did shooting pins. Everyone else had Scopes. I am very proud of her. She shot 899/900 and placed fourth.
Kinzie Thomas, a young, unassuming and humble archer has had a fantastic year with her bow. Kinzey was a 3 time winner at the North Dakota State Shoot and recently won the 600 Round Nationals and the National 3D Unmarked tournament in Yankton South Dakota. We are all very proud of you Kinzie and want to congratulate you on your fantastic shooting ability. It has been a joy to watch Kinzie shoot during the league season, both with the kids and the adults. Everyone who knows Kinzie eagerly awaits to see what the future brings for this little sharp shooter.
