The Lady Tigers varsity tennis team’s streak of four straight state tournament appearances is on the line today as the Region 7-AAA tournament kicks off at Lumpkin County High School. Dawson County enters the region tournament as the No. 4 seed after two straight victories over East Hall and Fannin County. The top four teams after the region tournament, which takes place Wednesday and Thursday, will advance to the state tournament. After a slow start to the season, the Lady Tigers are peaking at the right time. They defeated the Lady Vikings, 4-1, with wins by Savanna Kennedy (6-1, 6-0), Abbey Haymond (6-2, 6-7, 6-2) and Zoe Grindstaff (6-2, 6-4) in singles competition. Winning in doubles was the team of Ashlynn Anglin and Sammi Hafermalz (6-2, 6-4).
