Volleyball Preview 2021: Dawson County

The Lady Tigers are coming off their toughest season in history since the inaugural 2016 season, where they were 3-29 overall. After 3 straight playoff runs, including an Elite 8 appearance in 2019, Dawson County fell to 5-14 last season in a pandemic-riddled year. Coach Tanya Porter and company expect to take a leap back toward that incredible 2019 version of the volleyball program.

Head Coach: Tanya Porter, 6th Season
2020 Record: 
5-14; No Playoffs; #7 State Ranking

Personnel

Key Departures: Olivia Walls, Hayley Selzer

Key Returning Players: Emma Pelfrey, Avery Herring, Kirklyn Porter

The glaring holes on the roster will be huge voids left by Olivia Walls and Hayley Selzer. That duo were the undisputed heart and soul of the Lady Tigers. Walls had a school record 1,170 career assists. Girls will need to step up to fill those gaps this season.

Strength & Area of Focus

Strength: Experienced returning players

Focus: Consistency and growth…quickly
