Already a perennial top-three team in Region 7-AAA, and having qualified for the GHSA state tournament in each of the past four years, the Dawson County Lady Tigers varsity basketball team has lately experienced a level of success that can be largely attributed to the talent and leadership of senior Kaylee Sticker. “Anytime you have a player that comes through a program that resets the bar a little higher, it creates that added excitement,” Athletic Director Jason Gibson said. “Absolutely, it generates more energy around the program.” Sticker enrolled in Dawson County High School in 2015 and started as a freshman for the Lady Tigers having honed her basketball skills through participation in local parks and recreation programs and with a national level traveling, and immediately made an impact as she contributed to the team’s return to the regional and state tournaments.
