The Dawson County Tigers basketball team picked up three wins last week including a road victory over region rival Lumpkin County. On Dec. 12 Dawson traveled to Lumpkin County and won convincingly by a final of 58-38 before hosting Fannin County on Dec. 15 when the team crushed the Rebels 59-21. Over the weekend, Dawson earned a road win at Forsyth Central by a final of 53-39. “Anytime you get a win over a rival that’s a good thing,” said Head Coach Chad Pittman about the Lumpin victory. “Kids played well with both Lumpkin and Fannin. Had a chance to get other kids in with some extra time.”
