DBL ball is in season in PE this month. DBL is one of the many games we play that comes from outside the U.S. DBL comes to us from Canada. DBL (Dribblez, Bottez, Lancez) Ball is a team sport where players can manipulate the ball by hand or feet. DBL ball is an acronym for dribbling, kicking and throwing. It is a very dynamic sport where the possibilities of actions are immense. DBL Ball is inspired by the intensity of hockey, basketball dribbling, soccer foot play, smash volleyball, handball pitching, and even baseball sliding.
Second-quarter is a busy time in the band department. Here are a couple of highlights of accomplishments by Southern HS Band Students.
On November 9th, KateLynn Lovell, a senior in HS band, participated in the Doane University Honor Band. She has participated in this event for three years in a row. In the past two years, she has auditioned for the most experienced band and she earned a spot both times. Students from all over Nebraska and from all sizes of schools attend this event. In one short day they rehearsed and performed a great concert. We are proud of KateLynn for representing Southern and proud of her musical accomplishment.
At the end of October, we found out which band members will be playing in the Pioneer Conference Honor Band. This honor band involves schools that are on the west side of our conference. They are Friend, Diller-Odell, Lewiston, Pawnee City, Tri County, and Sterling. The honor band will be hosted by Diller-Odell on January 27th. There will be a concert at the Diller Odell HS gym at 7pm. We hope we see many Southern parents and patrons there, supporting our students. Admission is free.
Students in the band from Southern are:
KateLynn Lovell, 1st chair trumpet, 1st part
Kale Maguire, 2nd part trumpet
Izeah Human, 3rd part trumpet
