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.
