Enumclaw archer shatters record at national meet
Jenelle Delfino has taken the world of archery by storm.
The Enumclaw 14-year-old shattered a record that stood for more than three decades while competing at a National Field Archery Association gathering in Yankton, South Dakota.
The July 28-30 Outdoor Field Nationals saw competitors of all ages, both male and female, square off in three disciplines – field, hunter and animal. In the three, the targets are different and distances vary.
Delfino, who took up archery about seven years ago, took top honors in the “animal” category and broke the long-standing record.
An incoming freshman at Enumclaw High School, Delfino has been an avid archer for almost half her life. The sport has taken her not only to nationals in South Dakota, but also to a major competition in Las Vegas, where she placed fifth in a field of 50.
