The Dalton State volleyball team lost to Virginia Intermont in three close sets Saturday at the Mack Gaston Community Center in Dalton.
“The team played a little bit better today,” Lady Roadrunner Coach Bruna Langner said. “We lost in three, but we served better than the last match.”
“Our blocking definitely needs a little work and we will focus on that during Monday’s practice,” Langner added. “We are slowly getting there.”
