Ladies keep busy during summer

The Dawson County High School Lady Tiger basketball team has a busy summer planned. Head Coach Steve Sweat and his varsity and junior varsity basketball teams have already begun preparing for next season with several practice games and camps.

After five practices the team headed to Pickens County High School in Jasper for a series of games against some tough opponents. Games against the likes of AAAAA power North Gwinnett, Duluth, and other big schools will help Dawson County get ready for next year, according to Sweat.
