Hurricane-turned-tropical storm Irma had far reaching impacts, even to the Dawson County athletic programs. The volleyball team was not immune. Dawson County played Fannin and Pickens County on Sept. 14, picking up a fifth win this season over Pickens. The Sept. 12 match against Greater Atlanta Christian had to be rescheduled due to weather. “We didn’t practice Monday or Tuesday. We did come in and practice Wednesday afternoon. We were just rusty and it showed,” said Coach Tanya Porter. “We had not been in the gym, we had not touched a ball for several days and that’s nobody’s fault.”
