have made this an exciting week for our athletes. Athletes are working hard in workouts and
we had a good group of DMS Athletes at the Tennis match on Wednesday supporting our Tennis
athletes and again Thursday at the track meet – lots of fans cheering on our Field event and 2400
tracksters – I’m sure today will find many more Dowell fans supporting the Lions and Lionettes in
the final day of the district track meet. Just exciting to watch our girls and boys compete!!
Our MISD Athletic Word of the Week has been “Wisdom”. We visited with the athletes about being
attentive and listening to coaches, teachers, officials, parents, and taking information to learn, grow,
follow instructions and place into memory for future use. Our Athletes of the Week are: Ja’Marrayawn
Mack, Brett Burton, Sheldon King, Braden Engwer, Matthew Bonin, Adam Toombs, Tyler Ludtka, Peter
Broas, Brayden Stephens, Brayan Pineda, Imani Abboud, Maddie Jones, Vivian Boden, Jacie Schussler,
Erin Kittridge, Nina Rivera.
Today is the final day of the middle school district track meet @ Ron Poe Stadium stadium. 4:00pm we
start running events. Weather may be a little wet this morning – but by mid afternoon – we’ll be good!
Looking forward to an awesome time watching young athletes give it their best!
