Putting it all on the line, the Dawson County Volleyball team finished out regional play with a clean sweep of the Cherokee Bluff Bears and the Lumpkin County Indians on Oct. 2. The victories firmly secured a second place finish for the Lady Tigers and ensured a first-round bye in the upcoming regional tournament. The Cherokee Bluff Bears entered the night seeking their first regional win and looked tough and determined in that pursuit. From the opening serve, Bears junior Madi Phillips dominated the net and drove back every attempt to score by the Lady Tigers resulting in a first set 25–20 win by the underdog Bears.
