We opened the day with 5 teams left alive in the playoffs, and now two have punched a ticket to the quarterfinals, or Elite 8. Rabun did so on the day most teams played just once, but on Tuesday night, it was Dawson that stamped its spot for the first time in school history.
The Lady Tigers (26-23) have rolled into the quarterfinals, winning 6 sets to none now across two matches. On Tuesday, it was an easy 3-0 win over Groves, a #1-seed. That pits Dawson against #3-seed GAC in the Elite 8 matchup. GAC took down Jefferson in straight sets.
