they were talking about how much they rely on one another throughout the day, week,
and even weekends with dealing with school, home activities, and holidays. I asked them
when this started with one another and they said when they met each other in 7th grade
athletics. Working out together, supporting each other, they said the chemistry just started
growing - along with respect and care for each other and their families. Later in the day it
hit me – it was about the relationship they had developed – not about what team they were
on or if they won or lost – it was about each other and friendship. That’s success!!
Our MISD Athletic Word of the Week has been “Courage”. Coaches visited with the athletes
about developing their mind's and spirit to face difficulty, danger without fear, to be brave-how
being apart of the team and driving to be their best at all times will develop courage and a “No
Fear” attitude. Our Dowell Athletes of the Week: Reese Berthelot, Ersain Dominguez, Nicholas
Heilman, John Law, Jake Park, Will Manicom, Audrey Sperry, Isabelle Kostial, Sophia Sherman,
Bianca Diaz, Sydney Saad, Victoria Garcia, Silvia Morales Orozco, Presleigh Morris.
