Dawson Lady Eagles

PEARLAND — The Dawson Lady Eagles finished fourth last season in the District 23-6A standings and advanced to the playoffs, but head coach Isabel Gomez is hoping to see that improve this year.

Dawson was 15-17 overall last year and fell to No. 2 state-ranked Clear Springs in the opening round of the post-season.

Gomez believes that Pearland, who won district last year, is still the team favored to repeat, but she believes that her Lady Eagles could finished second behind Alief Hastings and George Ranch for the four playoff teams.

Dawson has a very young team with only senior captain Teshuna Lockart as a returning starter.

Gomez looks to Kyra Lunsford as the heart of the team who provides energy and inspiration for the rest of the team while Angelica White is described as great things that come out of small packages.

"Our team is quick and fast and we are a pretty good team," Gomez said. "We are very guard heavy. We have great team chemistry and the future looks promising. We need to work on our execution of plays and free throws."

Gomez is very optimistic as the non-district season is underway with the Lady Eagles presently looking to stay at the .500 mark as the 23-6A season begins this week.
