In a year that looked like the Dawson County Lady Tigers would be relinquished to terms like "rebuilding" and "lots of youth," the team has continued to surprise and peak at the right time. "As the old saying goes, ‘anything can happen at tournament time.' You should not be intimidated by anybody," said Head Coach Steve Sweat. The team finished the Region 7-AAA tournament in second place after defeating Union County in the opening round and upsetting East Hall in the second.
