Taking advantage of an almost week-long break, the Dawson County High School varsity volleyball team spent the time working on the fundamentals. “There’s room for improvement in our passing,” Head Coach Tanya Porter said. “I feel really good about it.” That good feeling was not misplaced as the Lady Tigers (4–3) took to the home courts for the first time this season on Aug. 23 for a two-match night featuring games against the Pickens County Dragons and the Bobcats out of Gilmer County. Tipping off the early match at 5 p.m. against Pickens County High School, the two teams came out evenly matched, trading points in small bites of two and three at a time as the set went deep into points. As both teams approached 20 points a series of kills and blocks from juniors Roxie Fricton and Marlie Townley finally allowed the Lady Tigers to push the final points and take the first set victory by a score of 25–19.
