Daisy Ann Dawyot is a seventh-grade student at Andrew Lewis, who is very involved in many school activities.  Daisy loves being active in her free time and enjoys sports. In fact, sports occupy most of her free time. She plays a few different sports, some for school and some for travel teams. Outside of sports Daisy participates in the Andrew Lewis SCA and Bridge Builders.

Basketball is a major part of Daisy’s life. She has been playing basketball since she was in first grade, or for roughly seven years! Daisy got her love of basketball from her family, mostly her brothers. She began to go to some of her brothers’ practices when she was younger and knew she wanted to try it herself.  Now she plays for the ALMS girls basketball team, #30. She also plays for the Virginia Warriors, #14. The main position she plays is the “four”. Her job as the “four” is to get rebounds and drive to the basket. When she is on the court she prefers to play defense, but she still enjoys offense. Daisy loves the fast pace of the game and working with her teammates to gain success. The ALMS girls basketball is currently undefeated! Overall, basketball is Daisy’s favorite sport.

This year Daisy decided to try a new sport, volleyball. Daisy had never played on a volleyball team before and spontaneously decided to try it out. She started coming to the open gyms as a sixth grader and thoroughly enjoyed it. She tried out for the team and secured herself a spot, she was #12. Her position became the front row hitter, which was a good position for her because of her height. Daisy loves the teamwork aspect of the sport, just like basketball. After playing a full season for Lewis she realized it also helps with her coordination for basketball. Daisy really enjoyed playing volleyball for ALMS and can’t wait for next season.

This spring Daisy wants to try out for the Lewis soccer team. She played soccer when she was younger, but had to quit due to basketball, but hopes to pick it up again.
All in all, Daisy is very devoted to sports and is an exceptional student. She would be incomplete without sports in her life.
