Jane Dunbar ’19

Kingswood Oxford varsity girls basketball senior Jane Dunbar ’19 is the Wyvern of the Week.
 
Dunbar has been playing hoops for over 10 years and has always enjoyed the sport.
 
“I have been playing basketball since I was in first or second grade,” Dunbar said. “I love that basketball is an intense team sport and that everyone is so positive and supports each other no matter what.”
 
Your senior season is always special and it’s no different for Dunbar, who has taken on an increased role this season. This season has also given Dunbar a chance to reflect on her career and appreciate what she has been a part of.
 
“I am a captain this year which added another level of leadership,” she said. “But being a senior has made me really appreciate how much fun I have being a part of a basketball team and has made me realize how much I am going to miss it once I graduate.”
 
Not only has Dunbar assumed a bigger leadership role, but she has also grown her game on the court and that has helped her have a bigger impact.
 
“I think the biggest area of improvement in my game has been my shooting and dribbling,” Dunbar said. “I used to not want to shoot or dribble at all and now I am comfortable breaking a press and look for my shot in games.”
 
With her last basketball game as a Wyvern set for Saturday, Dunbar is going to leave it all on the court and hopefully finish with a W.
 
“Personally I want to make the most of my last game and I think it would be really cool if we got a win on senior day,” she said.
