The Dawson County High School wrestling team has kicked off the 2019 season at a furious pace as the team has faced-off against seven opponents in three matches over a nine-day period. Starting on the road at Chestatee High School on Nov. 14, the Tigers battled the War Eagles and the Fannin County Rebels. Despite having to forfeit five weight classes due to the absence of wrestlers still committed to playing football, Dawson County gave as good as they got to fall short by only a handful of point against the two schools. Seniors Bri Ray, Christian Harper and Danny Phillips led a ferocious attack by the Tigers as each picked up their first wins of the season against Chestatee. Harper and Phillips finished the night with another set of wins against the Rebels.
