BC: David J. Rowell was born April 5, 1998 in Austin, Tx. His parents are Richard and Patricia Rowell. Dave competes in lacrosse, wrestling, and school football. He plays defense and attack in lacrosse, and is a center and nose guard in football. In 2009, for the first time in Westlake history, his tourney team won the Cy-Fair Lacrosse Tournament in Tomball, Texas. Westlake has competed in that tournament for many years, but never won. They won only because Dave chased the goalie around the net until the goalie accidentally passed it to our biggest scorer on the team. Dave has also gotten second in the Southwest Open in wrestling as Rookie/Novice. Dave is quite the athlete. | Justin J. Ziaja was born November 24,1997 in Austin,Tx.
