The Lady Tigers hosted Fannin County High School in a critical regional match-up for their first home game of 2019 on Jan. 11. Head Coach Steve Sweat understood the importance of the game to the team’s standing in the region and emphasized the physical nature of 7AAA basketball. “Should be a pretty physical game. That’s how they play, and we do too,” Sweat said. “Hopefully, we can play better defense and make more shots.” From the opening tipoff to the final buzzer, Dawson County out-paced, out-shot and out-scored the Lady Rebels for a final score of 58-32.
