Former Rim Country Middle School student Brady Ellison defeated Elias Malave of Venezuela in a shoot off March 24 at Ben Avery Range near Phoenix to win the men’s recurve archery gold medal at the Arizona Cup. On the extra arrow, Ellison shot a 10 to defeat Malave who shot a nine. Ellison, currently the No. 1 ranked archer in the world, is expected to contend for a gold medal at the London Olympics, even though the U.S. trials are not yet completed.
