Tigers runners up in regional tournament, head to state
Varsity boys beat East Hall Vikings in away game, fall to GAC at home
The Dawson County High School Tigers took second place in the 7-AAA Regional Basketball Tournament at home this past weekend and are heading to the state championship on Saturday. After finishing third in regular season regional play, the Tigers took third seed against Lumpkin County Feb. 6. Obliterating their competition in a domination of the Indians, DCHS prepared to face East Hall in the semi-finals the night of Feb. 9. The varsity Tigers knew that East Hall would be a challenge, having lost to the team by 25 points the previous week, and faced the Vikings as both the underdog and the away team in Friday night's showdown.
