Coming off a win against Union County last week, the Lady Tigers faced regional foe Lumpkin County for homecoming on Friday. After losing to the Lady Indians 58-38 on Dec. 12, the Lady Tigers were eager for redemption. In a close first half, the Lady Tigers were up 23-17. In the second half, Dawson County's defense allowed only five points, enabling the Lady Tigers to pull away and win the rivalry 43-22. “[It] was a great win for us, because they beat us the first time we played,” said Head Coach Steve Sweat about the victory over Lumpkin County. “I was proud of the girls for really getting after them on defense."
