The Lady Tigers entered spring break ranked No. 5 in the Class AAA rankings, according to Eurosport, after defeating now No. 6 Lumpkin County in a shootout. The win over the Lady Indians means that Dawson County just needs to win one of its remaining two region games over either Fannin County (10-4, 2-2 Region 7-AAA) on Friday or winless East Hall (0-12-2, 0-4 Region 7-AAA) on Tuesday to secure the No. 2 seed in the region and host a first round playoff matchup. In is highly unlikely that the Lady Tigers will catch No. 3 Greater Atlanta Christian (6-3-2, 3-0 Region 7-AAA) in the standings, as the Lady Spartans would have to lose twice for Dawson County (8-2, 3-1 Region 7-AAA) to pass them since the Lady Tigers lost to GAC, 2-0, earlier in the season. It’s been a breakout freshman campaign for Molly Muenchen who leads the team with 20 goals, just three goals shy of the school record set by McKay Shively, with three games remaining in the regular season.
