The Dawson County Lady Tigers played three games last week that started on the road with a regional opener against the Fannin County Lady Rebels on Dec. 4. Led by senior Kaylee Sticker and junior Sophia D’Oliveira, the Lady Tigers established themselves inside the lane early and often during the first period. Junior Marlie Townley contributed points from the free-throw line and Dawson County grabbed an early 16–10 lead. Sticker continued to drive the offense during the second period going 4 for 4 at the free-throw line as well as dropping in two shots from 3-point range. Townley and D’Oliveira continued to work the inside and the Lady Tigers took a 37–20 lead into the locker room at halftime. Dawson County spread the ball around the field during the third period as senior Anna Lowe, sophomores Bella Henson and Maddie Anglin and freshman Ella Siuta all contributed to the scoreboard. Sticker finished by adding 4 more to her team-high 23 points as the Lady Tigers extended their lead to a comfortable 55–41 heading into the final period.
