The Dawson County Lady Tigers volleyball team wrapped up non-regional play last week with a series of eight games in three days. Starting the week with the home court advantage the Tigers hosted the Stephens County High School Indians and the Chestatee High School War Eagles on Sept. 5 with the first set tipping off against the ladies from Stephens County. From the opening serve the game featured determined teams on both sides of the net. Juniors Roxie Fricton and Marlie Townley provided a staunch defense of the center while junior Chloe Bennett and sophomore Hannah Waddy provided power from the outsides. The set was a back and forth battle between what appeared to be two evenly matched teams but the solid teamwork and communication among the Lady Tigers allowed them to maintain the edge and pull out the first set win by a score of 25–20. The second set proved to be an equally tough fight for the Lady Tigers, but once again a unified team effort won the day and the girls took the set 25–21 and the first match of the week by a final score of 2–0.
