The goal of having a great start to its season has been achieved by the varsity girls basketball squad.
Last week, the Lady Tigers took the lessons they learned in practice and went on the road to Blue Ridge in search of their first Region victory of the season.
With just a few Region 7-AAA games to play before the new year, it was especially important for Dawson to take advantage of their matchup with Fannin County.
The Lady Tigers did just that, as they powered ahead of the Lady Rebels 10-6 in the early-going.
With a narrow 17-14 lead at halftime, Dawson turned it on in the second half with a 19-9 run to put the game out of reach.
The 49-42 win improved the Lady Tigers to 3-0, while Fannin fell to 2-4.
Carly Gilreath dominated as usual with 16 points, while Sheyenne Seabolt added eight points and eight rebounds.
Ashley Parker and Hannah Porter added six points apiece. Kenna Seitz finished with five points, Karlie Bearden had four points, while Allie Costley chipped in four points to go with four rebounds.
Boys basketball squad overwhelms Fannin
The Tigers scored big in the first half to build up a 29-7 lead on their way to a convincing win over Fannin County last week for their first Region 7-AAA win of the season.
Will Anglin hit a trio of three-pointers in the first half to finish with nine points, while Gunnar Armstrong and Jackson Putnam also finished with nine apiece.
Jonathan Sanderson finished with eight points, Tyler Dominy with six, and Lucas Pain chipped in five.
The 50-27 victory over the Rebels was the third-straight win for the Tigers and the two squads will see each other again on Jan 18.
Next up, Dawson County will compete in the Columbus Showcase this Friday and Saturday and will return home to host White County in a Region 7-AAA battle on Tuesday, Dec. 18.
