Senior Standout: Michaela Dowdy

Posted: Updated:

Michaela Dowdy is the star center for the Capital Bruins and this week's Senior Standout.

Capital is 17-1 on the year and 9-1 in the Western conference, with Dowdy providing a ton of versatility.

"When they focus on me it helps get my teammates open, and when they focus out when they're shooting well I get open so either way we're just doing really good," Dowdy says.

Good is an understatement. But something that can't be understated is Dowdy's work ethic.

"Michaela just never takes a play off. She leads by example that way better than anybody else. She always goes 100 percent," Bruins head coach Bill Pilgeram says.

"She's always working hard and you can tell. She doesn't really show it on her face but she is always serious on the court, you can see it," Bruins sr. guard Alexa Welch says.

"Whenever we're like down or we're not playing as well she'll be like "c'mon guys let's go, pick it up!" and tell us to get going and get our act together," Bruins sr. guard Kallie Hererra adds.

And according to her coach and teammates the only thing that may be bigger than Michaela's game, is her appetite

"She could eat more than any, half the high school boys that we've had. She's just always eating," Pilgeram jokes.

Thankfully for capital Michaela's appetite for food is only matched by her appetite for winning.
