Madisonville local Zach Rebstock placed in four out of his five events at the Texas 4-H Shooting State Games at the National Shooting Complex in San Antonio last weekend, which included a first place finish in the Modified 600 event.
“I think I was more prepared this time but did not do quite as well as I wanted to on the 3D or Wand competitions,” said Rebstock. “I felt good about the Modified 600 and Field. I think I did very well on the Clout, especially considering the fact that I was using a bow that I had never touched before.”
On top of his first place finish, Rebstock took second in Clout, third in Field and third in Wand. He finished eighth in the 3D event.
The events varied in numbers of arrows used as well as targets and were designed to broadly test the skills of the archers. Rebstock consistently placed in the upper tier of competitors, earning lower than third in just one of his five events.
Rebstock, who now has a tournament bow, will continue to practice moving forward with his new equipment. He hopes to return to the State Games next year and earn High Overall honors. For now, he is looking forward to the upcoming fall indoor season and continuing the TSAA outdoor season.
