She's been holding a bow since the age of 6, when a certain movie caught her eye.
"I watched "(The Chronicles of) Narnia" and I wanted to put on a play of it. So I decided I would learn how to shoot a bow and play Susan. And I got a bow and just got hooked on it."
It's not exactly Narnia, but Dahlia Crook excels in a world we don't often see: The world of competitive archery.
The 14 year-old from Piedmont has been all over the country pursuing her dream, a moving target.
"I went to Las Vegas and I shot in the Indoor World Championships and I also went to Phoenix, Arizona," she recalled.
In Phoenix, Crook placed 4th in a Team USA qualifier and with a few more scores like that, she'll make that team.
She chases the chance to represent both the USA and the sport she loves.
"I love the competitiveness. I love trying to win and shoot my best in competition. I just love shooting and I love meeting all of the people through archery," she said.
Ranked number 5 in the world in her 17-and-under age group, Dahlia owns 3 state records and even coaches youngsters who are interested in archery.
And, somehow, there's still room for more.
"I do musical theater. I like to sing as well. So that and archery are my main two things," Crook said.
