Dawson County High School Varsity Girls Coach Steve Sweat and his Lady Tigers split games last week. The Lady Tigers defeated West Hall, 62-31, before losing to Fannin County, 58-45, on Friday night. Both games were on the road.

Dawson County outscored West Hall 33-10 across the final one and a half quarters to earn a commanding Region 7-AAA victory on Tuesday night in Oakwood.

Sheyenne Seabolt posted a double-double for Dawson County, leading all players with 20 points and 17 rebounds. Karlie Bearden finished with 11 points, all coming in the third quarter, for the Lady Tigers, while Erin Chatham contributed with nine.

Finishing out the scoring for Dawson County were Ashley Parker with seven points, Ansley Costley scored six, Haley Burgess had three and Jordan Moore, Alison Honea and Brooke Wende scored two points each.

Jensen Hall finished with nine points for West Hall (5-9; 0-6).

Leading 29-21 midway through the third quarter, Dawson County used a 15-2 run to close out the third quarter, building a 44-23 lead over the Lady Spartans. The run continued into the fourth quarter, as West Hall was limited to just four field goals in the frame.

West Hall grabbed an early 12-7 lead, but gave way to a 12-0 Dawson County run in the second quarter, which saw the Lady Tigers grab a 19-12 lead.

West Hall ended the Lady Tigers' run at the 4:54 mark of the second quarter with a pair of free throws.

"We were able to get back on the winning track against West Hall tonight," Sweat said. "We were slow getting started, but we were able to come out and get it going in the second half."

Once again a slow start hindered the Lady Tigers in Blue Ridge against Fannin County.

The Lady Rebels used a 20-13 first quarter lead to ride to a 13-point Region 7-AAA win over the Lady Tigers.

"It was tough night for the Lady Tigers in Blue Ridge," Sweat said. "Fannin jumped out to a first quarter lead and we had to play catch-up the rest of the night."

Parker led the Lady Tigers with 20 points and seven rebounds in the loss. Seabolt added 15 points, Bearden had six points and Porter and Moore scored two points each.

With the loss, Dawson County is currently 13-6 overall and 4-4 in Region 7-AAA play. This week the Lady Tigers will travel to East Hall on Friday night for a region re-match with the Lady Vikings. Earlier this month the Lady Tigers defeated Coach Justin Wheeler's team 69-42.

Dawson County will play host to Banks County on Jan. 27 with hopes to avenge an early 58-46 region loss to the Lady Leopards.

Currently the Lady Tigers are in fifth place in the region behind Buford, White County, Banks County and North Hall.
