Archery: 4 More MSO Records; 15 Since 2008
Rainy conditions may have deterred participation in the MSO archery event this year but that did not impact the quality of the competition as many of our usual competitors squared off to qualify for the 2011 National Senior Games in Houston.

Every participant at the Genesse Valley Outdoor Center in Parkton Sept. 26 shot a qualifying score for National. Four state records were established, making 15 new records in just three years, many of them improved marks by the same athlete. That means the high-quality performance of many Maryland archers is, generally, improving with age.

The most impressive new record this year was Larry Hix's 880 in men's 70-74 compound release, easily beating Gordon Kelly's mark of 846 set last year.

Not to be undone, Bob Walker, who already owns three age-group records in compound fingers, improved on his standard of 776 set a year ago in men's 75-79 by shooting 795. In the past two years, Mr. Walker has raised the record 159 points from the previous recordholder, Scott Ballard, set in 2000.

Sue Weinstein's 870 in women's 55-59 compound release topped Fay Wise's 861 record set in 2008. Ron Thompson became the first competitor in the long history of the Maryland Games to enter the compound barebow, so his 712 in the 70-74 age group becomes the standard.

The heaviest competition came, as usual, in the men's 60-64 compound release. Tom Coblentz' 888 earned him his fourth straight age-group gold and was just two points shy of his record set each of the past two years. Ronald West, 2009 National Games silver medalist, shot an 876, followed by Bob Wise's 872.

Other notable performances were Vicki Clem's 830 for gold in women's 65-69 compound release, Jim Bauman's 850 in men's 55-59 compound release, and Ray May winning a competitive men's 65-69 compound release for his third straight gold in the event. Richard Paschke's 773 in 65-69 recurve just missed his 2008 age-group record of 776.

Event coordinator Ted Light shot an 802 in men's 60-64 recurve, leading all scorers in that event. But it was just four points shy of his state record set last year.
