SCOTT AND CBE’S BRADEN GELLENTHEIN, KRIS SCHAFF, AND CARA KELLY EARN HONORS
Scott Archery and Custom Bow Equipment had an eventful weekend, with podiums in both the IBO World Championship in Seven Springs, Pennsylvania and Berlin, Germany for Stage 4 of the World Cup.
“Braden and Kris are competing among some of the top archers in the world,” said Pro Staff Coordinator Darrin Christenberry. “Team USA leaving the World Cup with the Gold Medal, and Braden taking home the Bronze, speaks to their level of competition and drive. Their strong finishes are a direct result of how much time and effort they put into their craft.”
Held in Berlin, Germany, the World Cup brings together the best international archers in the world. Kris Schaff, Braden Gellenthein, and fellow USA teammate Steve Anderson fought a hard match against Denmark, a team they have consistently split records with. After a jaw clenching tied round, Team USA pulled ahead by a hair in the shootoff to win the gold.
Gellenthein later went on to battle Steve Anderson, and despite a tight race, found himself atop the podium once more to win the Individual Mens’ Compound Bronze Medal.
Back home, the IBO season came to a close with the IBO World Championship, held at Seven Springs Mountain Resort in Seven Springs, Pennsylvania. 1,200 shooters were challenged by a difficult course held on a ski resort, all made more difficult by rain.
Scott and CBE shooters Cara Kelly and Madison Rutkowski both made the shootoff for the Pro Female Release class. After an exciting shootoff, Cara finished on the podium in 2nd place, ending one of her most successful 3D seasons to date.
