The Dawson County Lady Tigers volleyball team opened regional play on their home court Tuesday, Sept. 11 with a double-header sweep of the Fannin County Rebels and the East Hall Vikings. The first match of the night proved to be the toughest as the Rebels came out and challenged the Lady Tigers point for point to win the first set 25–22. Led by an outstanding performance from junior Roxie Fricton (who amassed 27 kills, four aces, and led the team in digs over the course of the night), Dawson County fought back to win the final two sets by the thin margins of 25–23 and 25–21 to secure the match victory. “Super proud of the team that showed up tonight versus Fannin County,” said Head Coach Tanya Porter. “The girls refused to lose.”
