The Dawson County Volleyball Lady Tigers finished 0-3 in their games this past week. 

On Tuesday, Sept. 15, the Lady Tigers battled West Hall High School at home. The Lady Tigers lost their first match 25-20 but triumphantly came back to win match two 25-23. However, West Hall would take the tiebreaker match 18-16. 

“It was a great match to watch, we just came up short,” head coach Tanya Porter said.

Meghan Roche and Kirklyn Porter led the team with six kills and Jesse Mann led with three aces. Senior Olivia Walls had the highest number of assists, 16, and Senior Makale Everett led the team with 20 diggs. 

On Thursday, Sept. 17, the Lady Tigers traveled to Lanier High School in Sugar Hill, Ga., to play two non-region games against Lanier High School and Collins Hill High School from Suwanee. 

Though the Lady Tigers did not come out of either match victorious, the team refused to give up in their final match of the night against Collins Hill. After losing the first match 25-8, the Lady Tigers had the second match close all throughout, with the game tied 14-14, 17-17 and 18-18. The second match would end 25-19 in favor of Collins Hill. 

Due to technical difficulties, no stats were recorded for either match Thursday night.
