The Lady Tiger soccer team held its awards banquet last week at the Dawson County Board of Education Community Center.
Coach Jed Lacey's team is coming off a 13-4 overall record. The team was also Region 7-AAA runners-up, which earned them a first round playoff game with Woodward Academy.
Dinner was served after a welcome message by athletic director Grady Turner and an invocation by George Graves.
Several Lady Tigers received awards given by junior varsity coach Chess Hamby and varsity coach Jed Lacey.
Receiving awards at this year's banquet were: Rising Tiger Award-Sara Bruni; New Comer of the Year-Emily Queen; Best Supporting Player-Taylor Bennett; Coaches Award-Jade Perry; Iron Tiger Award-McKay Shively; Defensive MVP-Kenna Seitz; Offensive MVP-Tina Libao; and MVP "Golden Boot"-Anna Hawkins.
