The Dawson County High School tennis team's season is in full swing.

The boys and girls teams have improved each week this season in preparation for the Region 7-AAA tournament in mid-April.

On March 19 the Tigers swept East Hall at home. The girls didn't give up a match and won 5-0, while the boys pulled through 3-2.

Winning for the Lady Tigers were Hannah Velcoff over Star Hogan, 6-0; 6-0 at number one singles.

At number two singles Lauren Morgan defeated Beverly Tellez, 6-0; 6-0. Number three singles player Victoria Sousa won 6-0; 6-0 over Yosselin Aparicio.

The doubles teams of Makienze Hambe and Miranda Abe won 6-1; 6-0. At number two doubles Abby Brown and Madison Shope won easily 6-0; 6-0.

Pulling out wins for the boys were Jeremiah Freelund at number two singles winning 6-2; 6-1.

At number three singles Craig Butler defeated Jonathan Morales in three sets, 7-6; 5-7; 6-4.

Deciding the match at number two doubles were the pairing of Dillard Blanton and Hayden Roper who pulled out a 6-3; 7-6 victory giving Dawson County in the match.

The second set in the Blanton-Roper match came down to a tie breaker. The team was down 6-3 but rallied to win the tie breaker 8-6.

Thursday saw both teams travel to Oakwood to face a very tough West Hall team. The boys were defeated 5-0, while the girls lost 4-1.

The only win for the girls was at number one doubles. The partnership of Whitney Glover and Hannah Porter won 2-0.
