We’re 14 days into the school year and our athletes are so AWESOME! It’s not easy with the
early mornings for practice and the classroom demands placed on these young athletes. We
know this. Their encouragement for one another is strong and young leaders are developing
daily! Athletes are caring about the teams success – not their own! All of our sports are team
centered and life is also a team game. There’s a “Feel Good” atmosphere at DMS and it’s
spreading throughout the building! Dowell Spirit is OUTSTANDING!!!!
