As the season continues to move toward regional play, the Dawson County volleyball team played four games over two matches before the Labor Day weekend. Playing against the ladies from Chestatee and Lumpkin counties on Tuesday, Aug. 28 at Chestatee High School in Gainesville, the Lady Tigers continued to demonstrate the grit and determination that has become characteristic throughout the season by winning both matches in three sets. “I think it was the best they played all season,” Coach Tanya Porter said. “They were determined not to lose.” Battling with some ferocious competition from the War Eagles, the Tigers managed to pull out the first set by the slimmest of margins with a score of 25–23. Chestatee fought back in the second set and won with a quick 25–11, but Dawson County prevailed in a tough final set 25–19 to take the match by a final of 2–1.
