When Anna Threatt first picked up a recurve bow for the Callaway County 4-H Shooting Sports program just last fall, she probably didn’t know she’d be using that tool to break a state record a few short months later.

The 15-year-old Fulton student recently from the Missouri Bow Hunters (MBH) Association’s State Indoor Championship March 9-10 at Linn State Technical College, where she placed first as part of the 4-H State Recurve Archery Team in the Young Adult Female Freestyle Recurve class.

Her score there broke her own personal best, as well. She earned 262 out of 300 points March 9 with nine X’s and a 267 with 24 X’s March 10.

She also tried out for and won a spot to represent the state in the 4-H National Shooting Sports Invitational, held June in Grand Island, Neb.

“I was very excited that I broke the (MBH) record, and that makes me feel that I’m getting better and I’m prepared for Nebraska,” said Threatt.
