A total of 86 archers across all divisions shot perfect scores of 300 points on the first day of competition at The Vegas Shoot in 2022. The event runs until Sunday at the South Point Hotel, Casino and Spa.
Fifty-eight of those perfects were shot by men in the compound open championship division.
The leaderboard was topped by former winner Mike Schloesser of the Netherlands, who is currently ranked number one in the world, and reigning back-to-back Vegas Shoot Champion Kyle Douglas. Both shot 30xs.
“It feels pretty good to be able to start off with a 30x round. It’s always good to start off on the right foot on day one,” said Kyle.
“I’m just taking it one day at a time and doing the best I can.”
For the first time in Vegas history, some eight women shooting in the compound female championship remained clean after the opening day.
Former winners Tanja Gellenthien, Paige Pearce and Sara Lopez joined defending champion Liko Arreola among those registering 300s.
Recurve man Brady Ellison, who already carries the torch for being the only recurve archer to ever score a perfect 900 points, was also clean.
With 300 points and 25xs, Steven Rosburg led the compound senior division. He was followed by Robert Morgan, Bill Drake, George Ryals IV and Keith Trail with 24, 22, 20 and 19Xs, respectively.
Nathan Zimmerman, Eli Bartron and Colton Converse came through clean after day one of the compound young adult championship.
In the flights, nine men and one woman landed perfect scores, as did Kaden Hansen of Idaho in the bowhunter flights.
