The Dawson County Lady Tigers softball team took to the diamond of Jack Waldrip Field twice this past week, emerging with a victory in one and a loss in the other. The first game took place Sept. 11 when the ladies hosted rival Lumpkin County High School Indians. The “pinked-out” stadium, festooned with pink ribbons and pink balloons to promote breast cancer awareness, was packed to capacity as fans from both counties watched the Indians win a tough fight by the final score of 7–5. Broadcast live by North Georgia Sports Link. the game had the aura of a professional event and the stadium came to life as the Tigers spread out brightly across the field to open the first inning behind senior Maggie Schandera, who stood in the circle for her thirteenth start of the season.
