Dalton State's Michala Askew (Junior, Ringgold) sets for teammate Savannah Nelson (Freshman, Red Bank) in Dalton State's 3-0 win over Tennessee Temple Saturday night

It only took three sets, but two of those sets were down to the wire as Dalton State’s volleyball team defeated visiting Tennessee Temple 3-0 Tuesday night at Mack Gaston Community Center.

Dalton State Coach Bruna Langner was disappointed with serving as the Lady Roadrunners lost eight points on poor serves in the 3-0 victory 25-22, 25-14, 25-23).

After poor net play in a Saturday loss to Virginia Intermont, Langner had worked on her team’s net play during Monday practice. The work did seem to help. Stats of the game were not immediately available, but she was particularly proud of the setting of junior Michala Askew.

Dalton State hosts Tennessee Martin Friday night at 7 p.m. That match will also be played at Mack Gaston.
