Dawson advances to 6A Region III volleyball semifinals

DAWSON — For the fifth straight year, under the leadership of head coach Lauren Leth, the Dawson Lady Eagles have advanced to the 6A Region III volleyball tournament after Dawson swept the Summer Creek Lady Bulldogs in the region quarterfinals 25-13, 25-15, 25-23.

Dawson (32-13) will now face Cinco Ranch on Friday, November 11 at Delmar Fieldhouse in the regional semifinals. The regional championship will be played at noon on Saturday, November 12, also at Delmar Fieldhouse.

The Lady Eagles finished second this year in the District 23-6A race which doesn't matter when the playoffs begin. Pearland captured the district title this year and the Lady Oilers are still alive in the post-season on the other side of the playoff bracket.

Dawson has won 11-out-of-12 matches and the win was their sixth in a row. The Lady Eagles have been in the region tournament six straight times including the year before Leth arrived to take over the Dawson volleyball fortunes.
