Dawson Eagles

PEARLAND DAWSON — The 2019-20 basketball season for Dawson did not meet the expectations of head coach Mark Barre and he looks for things to be different for 2020-2021.

Barre has compiled a 280-137 record as the only coach that Dawson has known since opening in 2008. The Eagles are 13-4 overall this season and tied for first place in district with Pearland at 4-0.

Last season, Dawson failed to make the playoffs for the first time in school history after winning or sharing the district title for eight straight seasons.

But Barre has them back on track this season.

The Eagles have reeled off four straight district wins over Alief Hastings (55-45), Shadow Creek (59-52), Alief Taylor (45-38), and Strake Jesuit (67-47).

Senior Bryce Ware is averaging 14.8 points per game followed by senior A.J. Richard (12.5 ppg) and junior Hayden Windsor (11.9 ppg).

Dawson will host Alvin on Wednesday, January 13 at 7:00 p.m. and then travel to face the Alief Elsik Rams on Saturday, January 16 at 1:00 p.m.
