"Dayna's strength so far this season has been air rifle. She will get very solid in this event and really bring her smallbore scores to where she wants them. She is a hard worker and is very focused on doing well. With time she will reach the goals we have both set and really have a solid year. Look for her to continuously get stronger as the season goes on. It is just a matter of time for all her skills to come together and bring home some solid numbers. I feel this season we will see this more than once." - Head coach Harry Mullins
