In what Coach Tanya Porter called a good week, the Dawson County varsity volleyball team picked up an emotional victory over rival Lumpkin County during the region tournament to earn a spot in the Class AAA state tournament in only their second year of existence. “I can’t say enough about the Lumpkin County game,” Porter said. “I called them over and said this is exactly what we wanted. They were fired up, pumped up from the get go.” During the Oct. 3 region tournament at Greater Atlanta Christian the Lady Tigers first faced East Hall and lost early in two sets: 16-25 and 21-25.
