Dunbar 2013-2014 Fall Sports Review


Boys’ Soccer


They proved to be a great team by being ranked 1st in the district and by winning state against Trinity. This was the first time in eight years that the team has won state; they had the most wins in school history.


“The team made it so far last year and being there to see them go further this year was great.” said senior Hollie Jenkins.


After this year’s winning season, the team has high expectations for the nest season.


Girls Soccer


The girls’ soccer team played well while getting used to the introduction of a new coach and new members of the team.


Junior Morgan Tallio said, “I feel like this was a good start with the new coach and it will just get better.”


The team did well during their regular season. During their post-season they went all the way to regionals.




The football team won many of their games this year.  Coach Rains has brought new spirit to the team. They won five out of nine of their games this year, in comparison to last year’s three winning games of 11. This year showed some of the largest growth the team has had in years.


Freshman Tarik Muhammad said, “The upperclassmen gave me advice on how to get better at what I was doing. Because they were in my shoes at one point, I worked hard to listen to them and be the best I could be.”




The volleyball team had a successful season this year. The team won 29 of their 41 games and participated in many tournaments such as the Brentwood Invitational and the Midwest Challenge.


Sophomore Leah Edmond said, “No one gave up; we kept pushing no matter what came at us this season.”


That persistence throughout the season kept the team strong and resulted in a solid season.




The band and color guard began practicing in July and had practice every day after school and on Saturdays until the end of the season. During the fall they competed and performed well in their competitions. At the KMEA state competition this year they placed third with their show Shine.


Junior Courtney Kelly said, “Even though we didn’t get first place, I think the team grew closer. I think that will help us be better next year.”


The band has always been a strong group and next year should be another great one for them with the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade to look forward to after their competitions.
