HARRISBURG – Rep. Gary Day (R-Lehigh/Berks) congratulated Madilyn Riegel, a student at Northwestern Lehigh High School who recently captured first place in a statewide rifle championship, during legislative session in the House of Representatives on Wednesday.

Specifically, Riegel won first place in the Three-Position Smallbore Individual Title of the Three-Position Smallbore during the 2017-18 Pennsylvania State Interscholastic Standing Air Championships, held in DuBois, Clearfield County, earlier this spring.

“Madilyn has demonstrated her athletic excellence at one of the highest levels – and in a sport that is growing around the Commonwealth,” said Day, who hosted her trip to the state Capitol on Wednesday and presented her with a congratulatory citation from the House. “This sport demands a high level of skill and effort, where perfection is the top goal, and we are so excited to have such a dedicated athlete in our community.”

Riegel earned the title with an impressive score of 573-21, and also received the High Kneeling Position Award with a score of 196-10.

During her career in air rifle, she also participated in the national event in Ohio last summer, where she earned a bronze medal.

“Madilyn’s dedication is to be commended, and I am pleased to give that recognition to her on the floor of the state House of Representatives,” said Day.

Joining Riegel for the citation presentation were her parents, Mike and Emily; sisters, Malia and Marlaina; and boyfriend, Dylan.
