Stuart Barber and Rachel Boynton helped Hertfordshire secure gold at the Kent 4-Way Inter-County Tournament.
The Stortford Archery Club members and their team-mates triumphed in the compound bow class in Sittingbourne, with hosts Kent, Essex and Surrey also taking part.
Barber, who is the Stortford club's secretary, scored 572 out of 600 while Boynton totalled 569. Herts ended with a score of 2,307 to finish clear of second-placed Essex (2,260).
Fellow Stortford member James Walker received his first county call-up and helped the longbow team come second.
Across the four bow styles – recurve bow and barebow being the others, with four team members competing in each – Herts finished as runners-up overall.
Barber, who is also county chairman, said: "It was an excellent result against strong and very experienced counties. I was very proud of the team, of which four received their first call-ups."
Herts are back in action on Sunday when they entertain Middlesex.
