Continuing a road trip that started the weekend before Christmas, the Dawson County Lady Tigers traveled to Hart County High School to take part in the McDonald’s Shootout from Dec. 27-29. After high-scoring wins over the Wade-Hampton High School Generals on Dec. 27 and the Berkmar High School Patriots on Dec. 28 propelled them into the final round of the tournament, the Lady Tigers ran into a tough and determined Hart County team in a battle for the championship. Both teams fought hard for points with senior Kaylee Sticker leading the Lady Tigers through the first half with 15 points that she put up with a combination of inside and outside shots. Juniors Marlie Townley and Sophia D’Oliveira battled underneath to add points in the first quarter while sophomores Bella Henson and Maddie Anglin along with senior Anna Lowe racked up points in the second period.
