A Legacy in US Archery History

Meet Ann Clark!

It was my sincere pleasure meeting Ann.  She is now 91.   In 1953, she started bow hunting.   And, in 1954, she started competing against both men and women.   She was a member of the US Archery team in 1957.   At that time, she was one 3 women and 3 men on the team.  She, and that team, set records that stood for many years.

Her daughter, when she was 15, was also on a US team. 

Now, at 91, she has a little arthritis in her shoulder and she can't pull back the bow.   But, that hasn't stopped her from hunting.  She couldn't wait to get in the woods with her crossbow. 

Ann, it was my pleasure meeting you!   You have a wonderful passion!
