DPS SUNS FIRST WIN!! What a great evening!! JV Volleyball recorded DPS's First WIN in 3 Sets!! The excitement, celebration and the joy of winning as a TEAM was felt by all! So proud of their dedication and hard work!! Varsity Volleyball is getting stronger everyday!! They were so close today!! Flag football played a strong Olive Pierce team but demonstrated leadership on the field in making decisions/adjustments on the field as a team. I love seeing the teams sportsmanship, shaking hands, taking down and putting away equipment, caring for their field and gym by leaving them clean. Our coaches are true leaders and lead by example! Parents are positive and supporting all and it is only the beginning!! GO DPS SUNS!! Kim Cole- Athletics Director
