The final leg of the NFAA 3 Star Tour took place in Yankton, South Dakota over the weekend, and Elite Archery's Alexis Ruiz and Kris Schaff each walked away with success.

Dakota Classic qualification rounds began Friday, April 20th with 4 ends of 5 arrows shot at 3 distances, beginning with the closest distance (40, 50 and 60 yards). Archers were permitted 4 minutes per end, shooting at the target with the 6-ring center spot of the 92 cm target face with gold-red-blue, etc. (10 through 6) scoring areas. 

Alexis shot steady through qualifications and eliminations on Saturday, and placed third in the women's class.

"This has been an incredible year for Alexis," said Darrin Christenberry, Elite Archery pro staff manager. "At such a young age she is keeping up with some of the industry's best and seeing great success."

Kris also competed through the Classic, and while he was eliminated in one of the final rounds leading into the podium matches, his solid performance during the $10,000 Shoot Off landed him in first place.

Darrin Christenberry, Jacob Marlow, Keith Trail, Reo Wilde and Dee Wilde also represented #TeamElite over the weekend in Yankton.

"Kris hit the center at 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, and 50 yards and won the competition with a center 5 at 55 yards with his Echelon," said Christenberry. "To shoot that well during such an intense weekend speaks volumes of his abilities and the level of comfort he maintains with his equipment - I'm excited to see how he performs in Shanghai this week."
