In only their fourth year, the Lady Tigers volleyball team made history with their first appearance in the Elite Eight round of the 2019 GHSA State playoffs on Oct. 26. The team hosted the GAC Spartans for a best of five set match in front of a small, but raucous home crowd in the Ford Phillips Arena of Dawson County High School. As the Area 7, No. 2 team, Dawson County entered the game with a ton of momentum having won six-straight sets in the first two rounds of the tournament. Playing in Savannah, the Lady Tigers swept past the Area 5, No. 3 Haralson County Rebels on Oct. 19 followed by a 3 – 0 upset win over the Area 1, No. 1 ranked Groves High School Rebels on Oct. 22.
