Danielle Stauffacher of Beloit shot her way to a third straight record-setting Archery Championship during the 2019 National Senior Olympics in Albuquerque, New Mexico, over the past weekend.

The Beloit Field Archery member entered the competition as the holder of the top two scores in the age 50-54 women's compound fingers division, shot during the 2015 and 2017 seasons. After this year's two year-event, she departed Albuquerque with the top score in the same division, but a new age group. She topped the 55-59 group bench mark by 91 points.

Stauffacher earned the right to compete nationally after qualifying during Wisconsin's Senior Olympic Archery event hosted annually by the Beloit Field Archery Club.

Other Stateline Area finishers also did well in the event:

Jeff Button was first in compound release 55-59. Mark Jones was 12th in compound release 55-59. Susie Bolling was third in recurve fingers 60-64. Nancy Zorn was second in compound release 65-69. Skip Koske was ninth in compound release 70-74.

Stauffacher and over 100 other archers will begin the quest to compete in the next National Senior Games by competing Sept. 9 during the 2019 Wisconsin Senior Olympics hosted by the Beloit Field Archery Club. The Beloit event is open to the public.
