Knox Athlete Swept National Archery Tournament in 1941

Excerpt from the Register-Mail:

During May 1941 a Knox College coed turned in a miraculous score in National Archery. Shirley Hartwig turned in a score of 71-607 during the shooting of the Annual Women’s Intercollegiate Telegraphic Tournament while participating on the college Archery course at Green Oaks near Victoria. Hartwig’s score was considered comparable to bowling a perfect 300 game.

As a result of Hartwig’s fine shooting, the Knox College team took fourth place in the national standings and first place in the Midwest district.
