May 29 - June 2, 2023 - Eagle Eye News

Our track and field state qualifying athletes had an exciting, albeit stressful, end to their season while at Hayward Field in Eugene, Oregon this last week. Things didn’t go as planned in a number of events throughout the days, but they continued to give it their all. With 16 out of the 17 events complete, the DCS girls found themselves down by 2 points in the race for the championship.  With only the 4X400 relay left, coming in seeded seventh, they knew they had to finish in at least fifth place to have shot at the title once again. Shaving over 5 seconds off their previous season best, they prevailed, finishing in 4th place, and securing the championship for the second year in a row! While it took every one of them, they give God all the Glory! Check out the OSAA Article (scroll down to the 1A Girls section) and this Outlook article. This concludes a record-breaking year in DCS athletics, where our Lady Eagles have secured state championship titles in all three sports!

We are approaching the finish line for this school year as well. Check out the weekly Eagle Eye

It is our Senior’s final week of school. To close out their week, we will highlight the final 2 students for the weekly senior spotlight. 

Senior Spotlight: Abbey Atkins

Abbey has been a student at DCS since 2008, but her involvement really started at birth with her two older brothers paving the way ahead of her. Abbey has loved the DCS community and will miss it after graduation. Always having someone around to talk to and teachers that care about you has impacted her life. Some favorite memories include all the years of hanging out all together in the gym before and after games as well as the recent Yellowstone trip where she experienced a new level of bonding and growth with everyone else on the trip. After graduation, Abbey will be attending Eastern Oregon University where she will be pursuing a degree in Exercise Science while playing soccer as an EOU Mountie. Abbey has seen God opening up opportunities and making her path clear. She has also seen Him bring friends in her life to support her on her journey. During her time here at DCS she was given the advice to “Enjoy the Journey.” She has grown to understand and appreciate this, especially as she comes to the end of this part of her journey.

Senior Spotlight: Drew Adams

Drew came to DCS in the 7th grade, leaving public school in search of a smaller, more faith-based learning environment. He has grown to love his friends, classmates and the DCS community and will miss that the most after graduation. A highlight event for Drew was the Yellowstone trip this last August. Between the bonding moments with those on the trip and excursions like crossing the lake and the hike to the viewpoint, this trip is one of his favorite memories. After graduating, Drew and his family will be moving to Idaho. While he is still waiting on God’s direction with the details for his life, he is planning on attending local community college to get a start on a business degree before transferring to university. Drew has seen God open and close doors with each step this year and can see how He has brought him to greater maturity both spiritually and in everyday life. 

Last chance to sign up for the Elementary Girls (3rd-5th grade) Volleyball Camp which starts Tuesday, May 30th through Friday, June 2nd.
