The Dawson County Lady Tigers continued with their early season regional games as they traveled to North Hall for a battle with the Lady Trojans on Dec. 14. In a tough, physical game the Lady Tigers dropped a close one with a 58–55 loss, as they were unable to overcome a first half marked by foul troubles and turnovers. “These early region games before Christmas turn out to be so important in February,” said Head Coach Steve Sweat. “Your region games determine your seed in the tournament.” Senior Kaylee Sticker opened the game with a beautiful 3-pointer from the corner but was quickly answered with a matching shot from the Lady Trojan’s Grace Hollifield. After the opening scores, the Lady Tigers settled into a defensive set that did an excellent job of shutting down the North Hall shooting game but resulted in a series of early team fouls that derailed any attempt at momentum by Dawson County.
