She ranked second on the team in points, goals, and assists, and her five game-winning goals were tied for first. Dagny’s output only improved during the 2013 season.

Dagny is a productive midfielder who, thanks to her height, can win battles in the air and deliver accurate passes with her head. Dagny is always a scoring threat, but she also acts as a playmaker because of her effective distribution game. She exhibits lively footwork at times and displays poise on the ball.


Final Projection:

Dagny’s national team experience can’t be overlooked. Like fellow teammate Megan Campbell, Dagny is quickly becoming a veteran for her country even at a young age. As a result, she should transition well at the professional level.
