The Dawson County High School Lady Tigers played a pair of regional games over the course of the week as they continued to try and lock up home-field advantage for the post-season. The team split the games with a victory over Cherokee Bluff and a home-field loss to the North Hall Trojans, leaving them needing a win against Fannin County Sept. 25 to avoid traveling for the 7-AAA tournament’s first game. With an opportunity to lock up the fourth seed in the rapidly approaching 7-AAA tournament, the Lady Tigers softball team took to the road for a match-up with their regional opponent, the Cherokee Bluff Bears, on Tuesday, Sept. 18. Taking the mound in her 17th appearance, senior Maggie Schandera turned in her finest performance of the season thus far shutting down the Bears with a complete game three-hit shutout that also featured a solid defensive effort by the Lady Tigers.
