Tuesday, October 1, 2013 - by James Beavers

Pulaski, Tn. - The Dalton State volleyball team came out slow, but turned things around Monday night and gained a 3-1 win at Southern States Athletic Conference foe Martin Methodist College.

The Roadrunners lost the opening set, 27-25. They looked like a different team during the rest of the night. Under the leadership of Viviana Garcia, DS never trailed in the second set en route to a 25-20 win.   

Dalton (4-7) scored the first five points of game-three and didn’t look back, 25-17. The Lady Red Hawks (2-12) scored the opening point in game-four, but Dalton State dominated in a 25-16 win.

“Viviana had a very good night,” said Dalton coach Bruna Langner. The freshman from Warner Robins was the spark the Lady Roadrunners needed. “She was my best player tonight,” Langner added. “Her enthusiasm made all of the difference.”

Dalton State’s Michaels Askew had 16 assists and Clarissa Weber added 13.  Savannah Nelson had 15 kills. Karly Newman had 9 K’s. Garcia and Alyne Bianchi each had six kills in the team effort.

Gloria Watson led Martin Methodist with 21 kills and 9 digs,
