In the first stage of the Archery World Cup, hosted in Shanghai, China, the USA women’s team scored a silver medal. One of the team’s members is an employee of the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.

Correctional Officer Angela Bradley shot a 9-pointer in a face-off against Malaysia during the week of May 4. The team ended up missing the mark for the gold by 1 point.

“We beat some top teams in Mexico and Colombia, and I’m really looking forward to the rest of the year,” teammate Crystal Gauvin told the World Archery Federation in an online article.

From May 26-31, the team heads to Antalya, Turkey, to compete in stage two of the Archery World Cup.

“The Archery World Cup features the best international archers competing at four qualifying stages earning valuable World Cup points in hopes of becoming one of the 32 athletes that will compete in the annual World Cup Final. … Started in 2006, (it) has been a popular event for athletes, sponsors, media and fans. The Archery World Cup has grown into one of the annual premiere events for (World Archery attracting) approximately 300 athletes from 30 countries at each of the various qualifying stages,” the organization’s website states.
