The rain didn’t slow down the Lady Tigers as the Dawson County girls golf team qualified for the Class AAA state tournament with a fifth-place finish in the Area 3-AAA tournament April 26 at Highland Walk Golf Course in Franklin County.

Heavy rains last Monday and Tuesday forced officials to delay the tournament, but the Lady Tigers were still able to punch their ticket to the state tournament, shooting a 313 led by defending Area Champion Sydney Morgan, who shot an 86 en route to a fourth-place individual finish.

Union County was crowned Area 3-AAA champions with a 254 team score, while host Franklin County finished runner-up with a 284 followed by Hart County at 288. Also qualifying for the state tournament was Lumpkin County.

The Lady Tigers will close out their season on May 21-22 at Chateechee Golf Club in Hart County as they look to better last year’s 11th place finish with a strong performance at the Class AAA state tournament.
