Off season is off and running and lifting!!! We are working the kiddos hard and they are responding to what we ask them to do. It is our goal to make them a better "athlete" with the drills, weights, agility, and running that is planned in our workouts. Dress out is still expected with GRAY SHIRTS and BLUE SHORTS!! We will be outside everyday unless our the weather does not allow us to be under our cold weather policy. They may bring sweats (color doesn't matter) but they will need them so they can have them, just in case. We will be testing in off-season this upcoming week as well. we want to get the athletes a starting point of where they are now and monitor the progress over the rest of the year for growth in every aspect of athletics. We will be testing in the 300 meter shuttle run, 40 meter dash, Pro-Agility drill, bench, and squat. This is a great time for the kids because it allows them to see the progress that they make from the hard work they put into their workouts.
DRESS OUT IS REQUIRED EVERYDAY!!!!
Basketball season has arrived here at Dowell Middle School!!! It is off to a fast and furious pace. The players, coaches, and fans are ready to see some exciting BBall action. With tryouts over and done with and behind us the Lions teams played in the annual MISD Preview right after Thanksgiving Break. That was good for the players and coaches to see where they are in respect for getting prepared for the upcoming season. Teams were divided and it was time to do battle with District play early. Cockrill and Reynolds were the first 2 opponents of the year; with a B team tourney right in the middle of those 2 big early games. The teams seemed to be settling into their roles and they know what is expected of them. The upcoming Collin County Hoopfest is this Friday and Saturday for the "A" team. Dowell Middle School will be part host to this tourney. It is being played in multiple gyms in Frisco and in McKinney. It should be an exciting weekend of basketball. Both 7th & 8th grade Boys play here at Dowell. They both play play at 6:00pm on Friday. 8th Grade plays in the Main gym while the 7th grade plays in the Auxiliary Gym. I look forward to the upcoming basketball season. It should be a fun and exciting season!!
