McCormick keeps winning in bow competition
This is one of the best awards I have gotten, so far," said Chris
McCormick, 18, of Grantsville, who has been shooting competitive bow
since he was about twelve years old. McCormick placed 5th in the 2003
IBO World Championship at Snowshoe this month, where over 3000
shooters came to compete.
McCormick has traveled all over the country to compete, Florida,
Pennsylvania, Lake Erie, Georgia and the Carolinas. He has won over 80
trophies and 14 plaques. He shoots with Martin and Mathews bows.
He shoots most of the time with Rick and Cam Nicholas on Pine Creek,
who placed fourth and twelfth in the Snowshoe competition.
McCormick shoots at the Nobe Knockbusters, Parsons One-Stop, Gary's
Sporting and Pawn and Miller Archery.

"I always wanted to learn more about it," he said. "It is the best sport I've
gotten into. I have made lots of friends."
He is the son of Frank and Sherry McCormick of Grantsville.
