Westmoore's Jamie Dewbre – Academic Athlete of the Month Presented by Republic Bank & Trust


Senior volleyball player Jamie Dewbre is a starting setter for the Lady Jags of Westmoore High School. The six-year veteran of the court, Dewbre was voted co-captain by her teammates, a title she works hard to live up to.

“I was voted Co-Captain and I think it is important for me to be a leader because having leaders step up really allows a team to grow together and improve. Myself and the other two captains tried to make ourselves available if the girls ever needed anything, volleyball or otherwise. Also, our team has six seniors and a majority of the rest of the team is sophomores. I think us seniors really needed to step up and guide the several younger players that we have,” said Dewbre.

As a student-athlete, the student always comes first and Dewbre is a great example what it means to be involved with your school. She is a current member of the Oklahoma Association of Student Councils and serves as District 8 Vice President. She is a member of the WHS STUCO, National Honor Society, Link Crew, Class Council, Spanish Club, Multicultural Club and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

Academics are always a top priority for Dewbre.

“Academics have always been one of the most important parts of my life. It comes first over all other school activities. From a young age my parents pushed me try my hardest at everything I do, especially school. I’ve learned to settle for nothing less than what I think I can achieve. I plan to go to college after I graduate and major in something within the business field,” said Dewbre.

On the court, Dewbre is a competitor and loves how her teammates support one another and how close they have become.

“My teammates really are like a family to me. The seniors have been playing together since junior high and we have watched each other grow tremendously. I love playing for them, and I want to win not for myself, but because my teammates deserve it. Any free time we get, we’re spending it together, just having fun being in each other’s presence, and that’s probably what I’ll miss most after season,” said Dewbre. “I love how close my team and I are. We all try to spend lots of time together, not because we feel like we have to, but because we want to. We’re just one giant group of best friends and I couldn’t ask for a better team or a better team atmosphere.”
