Men's Recurve

Qualification Round

Brady, Jack, and Matthew Requa all improved their qualification scores from Shanghai! This was 19 year old Matthew Nofel first ever Archery World Cup and placing 79th in qualification is great!

Bracket Round - Brady Ellison

Brady Ellison was able to get a first round & second round bye as he ranked 4th after the qualification round. In the third round he was up against Sanzhar Mussayev (29) and ended up loosing 6-5. This was a pretty big upset as Brady should be making it to the semi-finals or finals in the World Cup.
