Going into the final home game of the 2019-2020 basketball season, Dawson County Head Coach Eric Herrick was well aware that a win on Jan. 24 would not only secure his team the top-seed in the 7-AAA regional tournament, but would also guarantee a berth in the 2019-2020 GHSA State playoffs. “That’s huge,” Herrick said. “We want to get that out of the way.” And in a game which saw a determined Lumpkin County squad hold Dawson County to their lowest score of the season, the Tigers locked themselves into the postseason for the fourth consecutive year with a solid 55-45 victory over the Indians.
