LOCAL bowhunting champion, Keelee Smith is beginning to make a name for herself in the sport, taking out first place at the Colac Otway Archers Special 20th Anniversary Competition recently, and redeeming herself after defeating the bowhunter who beat her at the national titles earlier in the year.
After doing well on day one of the two day shoot, Keelee finished the second day with a score of 328 in the three arrow round and 356 out of 400 in the single arrow round.
Kellee said, “I managed to beat the girl who beat me in the national titles earlier this year.
“To have beaten her felt pretty good and it was good to have been able to redeem myself.
“I’m proud of myself that I was able to do better than I did last year.”
Keelee’s next target will be the Mallee two day shoot at Mildura this month, followed by a two day 3D shoot at Bendigo in July, the State Titles in November and the World Titles next year on Easter weekend.
