The Dawson County girls’ varsity basketball team traveled to North Forsyth High School on Nov. 23 to participate in the annual Raiders Thanksgiving Classic. Sporting a 1-2 record, the team was looking to build momentum after a rocky start to the 2019-20 season. The Lady Tigers came into the tournament looking to bounce back from a tough 55-40 loss on Nov. 19 to the Flowery Branch Falcons. Despite 13 points from senior Sophia D’Oliveira, the team struggled on both sides of the ball according to Head Coach Steve Sweat. “Give Flowery Branch credit, they took advantage of our mistakes,” Sweat said. “When you don't play good defense or offense it is hard to win a game. It is especially hard against the people we play.”
