Santa Cruz Archers‘ Karen Williams and Jeanne Bueke both placed second in their respective divisions, and SCA board member Ed Terribilini earned bronze, according to State Indoor Championship results that were released last Sunday.

The championships, which saw 22 records set, were run during the month of January at multiple locations throughout the state. Williams, Bueke and Terribilini competed at SCA’s DeLaveaga Park Archery Range in Santa Cruz.

Williams, a Scotts Valley resident, earned her silver finish in the adult female Olympic-style division after shooting two bull’s-eyes in the center X — about the size of a dime, according to SCA’s Henry Bertram — en route to 353 points. She finished just behind Cherry Valley’s Timalyn Enright [390] and in front of Palomo Archery’s Suzette Warren [344].

Bueke, a Ben Lomond resident, also shot two bull’s-eye Xs en route to a second-place finish, where she placed second to Willow Creek’s Diana Dancz [374]. They were the only two competitors in the senior female Olympic-style division.

Williams and Bueke were the only ones in their divisions to shoot bull’s-eye Xs.

Terribilini’s third-place finish came in the men’s senior Traditional Recurve division, where he also shot two bull’s-eye Xs — an accomplishment in a division wherein archers do not use sights or stabilizers. The Watsonville resident scored 339 points. His division was won by Predator Archery’s Paul Henry [347] and Lodi’s Doug Brown was second [341].
