90 arrows in Vegas concludes with 25 championship 900s

Updated: Feb 15

Ninety arrows at the 56th edition of The Vegas Shoot has come to an end after three days of competition for over 3,000 registered archers at the South Point Hotel, Casino and Spa.

Across all the divisions, we had 25 championship shooters, including three women, score perfect 900s.


Tanja Gellenthien, Paige Pearce and Liko Arreola are all former champions of the tournament.


Gellenthien was the third women to ever score a perfect 900 points back in 2017. Pearce hit the mark in 2020, while Arreola is the defending Vegas Champion.


The Compound Open competition will feature 22 perfect men plus a Lucky Dog, Stephan Hansen this year, for a shot at the $50,000 grand prize.


The 25 compound championship shooters were joined by compound archer Julio Barillas of Guatemala, who was the only shooter in the flights division to finish clean.


“It’s the greatest feeling that I have ever felt, the adrenaline and pressure of not missing is big, but when you release the arrow in the middle knowing you did a great job is awesome,” said Julio.


“The last time I came to Vegas was in 2017 and was far away from the 900. Now, my goal is to come back and shoot in the Championships division.”


The flights divisions accounted for over 1600 entries across all categories, with Compound Flights being the most popular with 931.
