Watch it below:
DAVISON (DTV) – (3/12/2020) – Davison Community Schools’ Superintendent Kevin Brown has just released information on delays of non-essential events. These are all due to the infamous spreading virus COVID-19, otherwise known as coronavirus. Although, what exactly is Coronavirus?
“Coronaviruses are a group of viruses that are common in both humans and animals that usually cause mild-to-moderate respiratory illnesses”, says Yale-New Haven Health. Symptoms of this rapidly-evolving virus are shortness of breath, having fevers and coughing.
How is this spread?
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announces this to be circulated “between people who are in close contact with one another (within about 6 feet)”. This is also spread through respiratory drops made when a person with the virus sneezes or coughs.
How can I guarantee my protection and others’ from this virus?
Although there is no vaccine for this virus, there are still many precautions you can take in order to stop the spread:
- Clean your hands often: Wash hands with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds
- Avoid close contact with others: Distance yourself about 6 feet with others
If you’re feeling under the weather, there are many steps you can take to stop it from getting others sick as well:
- Stay home if you’re sick: Don’t risk the spread, stay in bed if you’re sick
- Cover your coughs and sneezes: Try and cover yourself with tissues or your elbow
- Wear a face-mask: Yes, it may seem silly, but it’s better to be safe than sorry
- Clean and disinfect: Clean tables, doorknobs, light switches, counter-tops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks to stay healthy!
What events have been postponed at DHS?
There have been several events that have been postponed here at Davison High School
- Thomson Elementary Family Reading Night
- Mr. Davison Show
- Parent Teacher Conferences
- DCER’s Daddy Daughter Dance
- And ALL NONESSENTIAL EVENTS
Make sure to take all of the precautions in order to stay away from this virus!
DAVISON (DTV) – (3/2/2020) – Our Davison-made wrestling team competed against nationally ranked 5th Detroit Catholic Central this weekend and we have the results.
Wings Stadium in Kalamazoo was buzzing all day as the division one match up was to be played: DCC vs. Davison.
The match went back and forth, each team trading points and pins. The atmosphere of the stadium was electric as the fans supported their teams.
This was continuing until the Alex Facundo match. He was dominating against rival Manny Rojas, until this move performed by Facundo where the referee ruled that this was an illegal slam.
After the play, Rojas stood and went back into wrestling position before the match was stopped by the DCC coach. An examination by trainers ruled that Rojas could not continue, which meant that Facundo was disqualified. This opened the door for DCC to get the points and secure another state championship as they win 34-23.
Davison wrestlers were stunned, but still walk away with another impressive season. The boys will seek some revenge at Ford Field this weekend as they fight in individual states.
There is still a question if Facundo will be allowed to wrestle in the individual state finals after his disqualification. We will bring you updates as they come in.
DAVISON(DTV)- (2/24/20) – The Davison wrestlers have been having a dominant postseason run for the 2019-2020 season, and it all started back in the SVL.
After dominant blowout wins against SVL foes Lapeer and Grand Blanc in the regular season, districts was more of the same, beating the Bobcats in districts semi-finals 58-5 and the Lightning 70-9 in the district finals.
One week later, the team headed out to Midland for regionals. They shut out the Swartz Creek Dragons 74-0 in the semifinals, and in the regional finals took down Oxford 62-9.
Senior Andrew Chambal(130) says the team is upping the ante at practice in preparation for quarter-finals against Clarkston, and a possible rematch against Detroit Catholic Central, the only team to hand the Cards losses this year.
Upping the ante certainly came in handy, as the Cardinals blew out the wolves 45-3 at the quarterfinals on Friday the 28th. From there they had a rematch with Brighton from last year to look forward to on Saturday.
They started out of the ordinary, down 0-5 after the first match, but quickly picked things up against the Bulldogs. They had a 21 point run through the next 4 matches, with senior Jay Nivison (171) getting a crucial pin. Davison kept on rolling, winning the semi-finals with a score of 35-23, advancing to the state finals yet again and pinning them against Detroit Catholic Central for the final time this season.
There was no shortage of drama between the Shamrocks and Cardinals, with a back and forth match and pins left and right. All until the slam that had everyone talking. Davison Junior Alex Facundo(171) was wrestling Shamrock Manny Rojas(171), when he picked Rojas up for the controversial move. The play was whistled dead, with the referee calling an illegal slam on the play. Shortly after, the DCC Coach called Rojas over as he was preparing to resume the match to have him checked by the medical examiner. He was ruled unable to continue on, and Facundo was disqualified as a result. From there, Davison was unable to rebound with the loss of the top 171lb wrestler in the country, with DCC crowned champs once again after winning 34-23.
Individual state finals are coming up, stay tuned for results!
