The Dawson County competition cheerleading team traveled Saturday, Sept. 22 to participate in the 2018 Lambert Longhorn Cheer Classic hosted by Lambert High School. The team faced some of the toughest competition they have seen thus far as the competition featured regional rival North Hall, and the AAA team from Morgan County that finished fourth at state in 2017. The Dawson County Tigers posted an almost perfect routine, to include all elements of their pyramid formations, to take first place in the event. The win gives them three first place finishes in three events. “Their overall performance scores also continue to get better each week with the scores only being a couple points away from a perfect score,” said Head Coach Kim Fleming. “They are a very talented and coachable team.”
