The Dawson County Lady Tigers opened the 2019-20 basketball season with a game against the region 8-AAA Jefferson Lady Dragons on Nov. 9 at the Adrian Penland/North Georgia Report High School Showcase in Buford, Georgia. Playing aggressively on both sides of the court, neither team was able to build any momentum in the first half of play as fouls continuously interrupted the flow of the game. After a slow start to the game, the Lady Tigers were outpaced by the Lady Dragons over the final minutes to drop the season opener by a final score of 54-47.
