The Dawson County varsity softball team traveled last week to Gainesville and Greater Atlanta Christian. Though the early season has meant wins on the road, the Lady Tigers lost both against solid competition. “Even though we lost, we played better,” said Coach Jimmy Pruett. “We played better. We competed harder.” Dawson lost on Aug. 28 at Gainesville, 5-4. Against GAC, the Lady Tigers lost 8-3.
