The Dawson County Lady Tigers traveled to North Carolina last week to participate in the three day “Holidays on the Hardwoods” tournament held at Cherokee High School. On the first day of the tournament, the Lady Tigers had a rough start and fell to North View High School from Tennessee. The first quarter was close, ending with a score 17-16 but North View took command in the second quarter. “We could not get anything going in the second quarter and they outscored us 13-5 to take a 30-21 lead into the half,” said Coach Steve Sweat. The Lady Tigers had too many defensive breakdowns and turnovers in the second half, causing North View to continue their lead and win 68-42.
