Levi Morgan Takes Top Honors at IBO Series Event

AMERICAN FORK, Utah –  Gold Tip and Bee Stinger pro shooter Levi Morgan won the first leg of the IBO National Triple Crown in Pipestem, West Virginia this past weekend, capturing the podium of the Pro Release class and qualifying for the IBO National Triple Crown World Championship.

Gold Tip and Bee Stinger teammate Joseph Goza took second in the Pro Class, falling just 4 points shy of Morgan. Relying on his Series 22 Pro shafts, Morgan racked up an amazing 14 of the 20 possible 11 rings to surpass Goza on the final day.

In the Women’s Pro Class, first-year professional Erin McGladdery from Saskatchewan, Canada took the title after leading both days. The 26-year-old Gold Tip shooter is showing the bright future ahead of her while also relying on Gold Tip Series 22 Pro shafts. McGladdery was using a Bee Stinger Premier Plus stabilizer throughout. 

Gold Tip shooters also took the podium in the Semi-Pro class, with veteran Gold Tip team member Dale Jones coming away with the win.  

The IBO (International Bowhunting Organization) holds a National Triple Crown series consisting of three events, and then culminating in the IBO World Championship in August. An event round consists of 40 targets at unmarked distances, with 20 targets shot each day.
