In Head Coach Chad Pittman’s second year at the helm, the Dawson County High School boys’ basketball team increased their win total by five games, from 14-14 to 19-10, including a win in the state tournament, their first since 2014. It was a year of firsts for the senior class of Cullen Reed, Jeremiah Crumley, Ryan Gallenkamp, Kane Pelfrey and Wyatt Haase. Not only did they record the first and only tournament win of their tenure this season, they did it at home. A 66-53 win over Monroe Area was the Tigers' first time hosting a state tournament game since 2014.
