WATL State Profile: California

It’s time to head west to the golden state! California has a bunch of axe houses supplying people with fun and competition from top to bottom of the state Arcata to San Diego.

California’s Top Talent

While we haven’t seen a ton of representation on the WATL tournament stage from throwers hailing from California, outside of Winter 2020 5th Overall Nate Hodges, there are some throwers making rapid improvement in the league scene. Tom Nelson throwing out of Axe N Dagger has improved from a 35% bullseye thrower to a 67% bullseye thrower in just over 6 months. Zach Mohrmann bumped his score 141 points between Fall and Winter and is sitting at a nearly 75% bullseye on the season.
