GPO-Sponsored Sharon Wallace Wins ASA Season Opener


RICHMOND, Va. (Feb. 26, 2020) —Sharon Wallace, German Precision Optics (GPO) USA- sponsored 3-D archer kicked off the season by winning the Women’s Pro division at the Archery Shooters Association (ASA) Hoyt Pro/AM tournament held in Foley, Ala. last weekend.

Coming into the shootdown, the Women’s Pro division was in a three-way tie between Kailey Johnson, Erin McGladdery and Sharon Wallace for first at one down. Sharon Wallace ultimately took the title with her first five shots being two 12s, three 10s and needing only an 8 on the final arrow, she finished it off with another 12.

“It was an incredible feeling to be able to come out of the first 3D shoot of the year with a win,” said Sharon Wallace. “I couldn’t have asked for a better beginning. I am really looking forward to the rest of the year.”

“I want to thank GPO for their support. In the Woman’s Pro Class, we shoot unknown distances. With my GPO 10x42s I can always see my targets crystal clear,” Wallace concluded.

ASA 3-D archery features competitive rounds shooting lifelike, three-dimensional foam animal targets. Amateur classes are decided by the final totals after 40 targets. Pro Classes shoot the same 40 targets and then the top five shooters in each Pro Class advance to a shootdown. During the shootdown each archer shoots an additional six targets with a more difficult 14-point ring added to enhance the risk and reward for extreme accuracy. There is a total of six ASA tournaments each year. The next tournament, the Elite Archery Pro AM, is slated for March 26-29 in Russel County, Ala.
