Blitzsportsga.com has published their finalists for 2018 High School Player of the Year honors for both volleyball and cross-country and three Dawson County Tigers remain in contention for the prestigious awards. Nominees are considered based on their overall performance during the season, along with coach recommendations, and are voted on by a select panel of judges put together by Blitzsportsga.com.

In a break out season for the Dawson County Cross Country Men’s Varsity team, junior Ben McGinnis showed the future strength of the program with a third-place individual finish in the region finals (16:04.6) and a ninth-place finish in the 2018 State Tournament (17:00.35) that earned him All-State honors.
Looking to defend her title as Runner of the Year for the third year in a row, senior Frankie Muldoon continued to lead the Dawson County Cross Country Women’s Varsity team by capturing her fourth straight individual 7AAA regional victory (setting a new school record in the process) and finishing third overall in the State Tournament also earning All-State honors.
