P&D: Have you been to the United States before?

P&D: What other tournaments have you competed in at the Yankton complex? 

Maude: I went to the IFAA World Field in August 2014 and received a bronsz medal.

P&D: What did you think when you heard the WAYC was going to be held at the Yankton complex, where you’ve already competed?

Maude: I thought it was great because I’ve been there and it has given me a sense of comfort.

P&D: What do you think of the complex? 

Maude: It’s amazing. There’s everything there-the indoor range, the practice ranges, field course and hotels nearby. It’s perfect.

P&D: What was the qualification to get here?

Maude: I had to shoot two 6 60’s or higher out of 720. I submitted my score that was higher than that at trials in Windsor, Canada.

P&D: How long have you been shooting and how did you get into the sport? 

Maude: 3 and 1/2 years. I tried archery in vacation once at a resort in the Dominican Republic and I fell in love with it and continued when I got home.

P&D: What does your family think of your interest in and love of the sport? 

Maude: They think it’s great because it’s different. I’m the first and only in the family who shoots.

P&D: Are you looking forward to meeting the international archers? 

Maude: I actually know a lot of the U.S. girls, so we’ve become pretty close friends because of competitions we’ve competed together in Yankton, Vegas, and Kentucky.
