COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - The 2007 World Indoor Team Trials were held this past weekend in Hillsboro, Texas where 24 archers qualified to represent the United States at the 9th FITA World Indoor Championships in Izmir, Turkey March 13-17.

In the Senior Recurve Category, number one ranked, two-time Olympian Vic Wunderle (Mason City, Ill.), Shawn Rice (Albuquerque, N.M.) and Staten Holmes (San Antonio, Texas) all qualified to represent the men. Wunderle is the reigning World Indoor Championship Silver Medalist for the senior recurve men.  Sixty-three year old Phyllis Shipman (Haleiwa, Hawaii) along with Kendra Harvey (Rio Rancho, N.M) and Jennifer Holmes (San Antonio, Texas) round out the team for the women.

On the compound side, Dave Cousins (Standish, Maine), who won a team gold at the previous two World Indoor Championships will join two-time World Indoor Champion Reo Wilde (Pocatello, Idaho), who was also on the 2003 and 2005 gold medal men's compound team.  Braden Gellenthien (Hudson, Mass.), the 2003 World Indoor junior compound individual bronze and team gold medalist will be the third member of the men's senior compound team.  For the compound women, Christie Colin (Ransomville, N.Y.) along with Holly Pagel (Bovey, Minn.) and 2005 World Indoor individual bronze and team gold medalist Jamie Van Natta (Toledo, Ohio) qualified to compete for the U.S. on the World Indoor Team.

Collins, Colo.), 2005 World Indoor Team Bronze Medalist Stephanie Rowland (Orchard Park, N.Y.) and Heather Koehl (Sheboygan, Wis.) for the women.
