Hey, hoping someone can enlighten me as to how the Academic Team Round is shot and scored. This is the round the World University Games is using for the Team events and it would be nice to have some perspective on the scores being shot.
It is a "hit or miss" system where the "hit" zone is yellow and is the size of the 9 ring. Everything else is red and counts as a "miss". You can see the target in the background of this picture taken in Thailand last year. That's Zorno shooting during the team rounds.
I thought I heard of this scoring once but wasn't sure.
So in other words, the 27 the Korean Ladies recurve team shot in one of their elimination matches would be considered pretty good, huh ! Highest score I think I saw from any of the teams' passes - all divisions! Pretty impressive shooting, would have been fun to watch it in person.
If I'm not mistaken, this was the brainchild of Mr. Beiter, founder and head of the Beiter Archery Products company. You can read a writeup of the experience at the WUG at the TSAA website by Guy Krueger here:
