The Dawson County Lady Tigers volleyball team faced some of their toughest competition of the season over the last two weeks as they played a series of games against both regional and non-regional opponents. Starting a week on the road by traveling to Oakwood on Sept. 18 for a tri-match involving the Spartans from both West Hall High School and Greater Atlanta Christian, the Lady Tigers came away empty handed on the night as they dropped both matches in straight sets. Looking to bounce back the Lady Tigers next headed to Gainesville High School for another non-regional contest with the Red Elephants. Playing a best of five match Dawson fought hard to stay close in the first two sets, but ultimately lost the match in straight sets by a final of 3-0. “Gainesville has a really good libero,” said Head Coach Tanya Porter. “Nothing gets down to the floor.”
