Last Saturday, the Nettes varsity basketball team traveled to Dawson County to take on the Lady Tigers in non region action. Pickens, coming off of a tough defeat at the hands of their rivals the Lady Cats of Gilmer, had to block that out and focus on a good team in Dawson not even 24 hours later. This would be the 2nd game in a home and home series between these two teams.The Lady Tigers jumped out early on in the opening quarter holding a 15-4 lead heading to the second quarter. The Nettes found more offense in the second quarter but Dawson outscored Pickens 23-20 to take a halftime lead of 38-24. The Lady Tigers would continue their scoring pace as they outscored the Nettes in the third 16-10, to take a 54-34 lead headed to the final quarter of play. Dawson led throughout this one and came away with the 71-40 victory.

Pickens is now 4-5 on the season and 2-1 in region play
