DHS Sports Week with Nattie Swan

By Nattie Swan -   Mar 15, 2007

Baseball

Star player: Trey Watkins because he is hitting over .600, has scored 16 or 17 rins already, and has stolen 12 bases.

Sparkplug: Renny Weber because he is hitting over .500, playing solid 3rd base, and helping out at catcher.

Strong point: Hitting the ball.

Desty Darlings

Star player: Courtney Harper because she's always happy and ready to help others.

Winter Drumline

Star player: Steven Tumblin because he is our top player and he is a very outgoing performer. The thing about indoor drum line is that you have to act to portray the point of your piece to the audience and Tublin does that very well.
