GPO-Sponsored Husband & Wife Archers Take IBO Spring Nationals Titles

RICHMOND, Va. — Jack and Sharon Wallace, German Precision Optics (GPO) USA-sponsored husband-and-wife 3-D archers, both took home top honors at the International Bowhunting Organization’s (IBO) Spring Nationals this past weekend in Wilmore, KY. This tournament counts as part of the Shooter of the Year award and is the last stop before the IBO National Championship series that begins next month.

With high winds, rain and weather ranging from the 50s to high 70s archers skills were truly being tested. GPO’s Jack Wallace shot a score of 415 with 23 bonus rings to secure the Men’s Professional division title and his wife Sharon won the Female Pro division by a commanding 26 points. This husband-and-wife duo have won the last two IBO titles and currently lead the organization’s Shooter of the Year race.

“This was an extremely exciting weekend for us,” said Jack Wallace. “It is great when either of us places, but for both of us to take the top place on the podium at the same tournament is quite an honor.

“We want to thank GPO for their continued support. We don’t go anywhere without our GPO Passion binoculars.”
