Kaitlyn Price has been enjoying archery since she was 7 years old. “When I was little,” says Kaitlyn, “I was basically my father’s shadow. I’d do whatever he did. He shot, so I did too!” And so Kaitlyn found her beginnings in archery.
When Kaitlyn was 12, she beat out all of the boys (who were older and bigger than her) for 1,000 dollars at the 2000 ASA Classic in Atlanta, GA. “It was glorious!” She exclaims.
She credits her family as being the most important people in her archery career because of their constant support and encouragement. She’s enjoyed all of the time she’s been able to spend being a pro shooter, and believes that her favorite part of archery has been meeting all of the people. Both that, and that she “love(s) those high pressure situations!”
“Archery can be a frustrating sport at times,” she says. “But it’s 90% mental. Never give up!”
Kaitlyn shoots a Monster 7, and an MR6 as well as a Z7 for hunting. She competes in the Women Pro Division and here are some of her recent accomplishments as an archer:
- 2011 – ASA World Championship – 4th
- 2011 – IBO World Championship – 2nd
- 2010 – ASA World Championship – 5th
- 2009 – ASA World Championship – 5th
- 2009 – IBO World Championship – 2nd
When not competing, she gives archery presentations to local boy scout groups and elementary/intermediate schools. She’s also a bee keeper, loves playing the fiddle, hiking, camping, hunting, fishing, kayaking, and gardening.
Kaitlyn Price’s personal testimony for Mathews bows:
“Mathews bows are the Mercedes Benz/Land Rover of the archery world. They are sleek and stylish; however, they get the job done no matter how messy and rugged things get. I have quite literally grown up with a Mathews in my hand, and would not have had it any other way!”
