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.

Calling Out Bad Behavior In St. Elmo - And Response (2)

I have lived in the St. Elmo community of Chattanooga for practicially all 52 years of my life. My grandmother moved to St. Elmo in 1919. My Dad was literally born in a home in St. Elmo and lived his entire 72 years in this community and my Mom has lived here 60 years of her life. I am very disappointed in what my neighborhood has become. I like people. ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Amputee Team Wins Relay

As a news junkie there isn’t a lot that gets past me in my morning reading, yet I had no idea there was a relay race in Chattanooga two weekends ago. Maybe that’s why 1,500 people ran away and never came back – the finish line was in Nashville. How the Ragnar Relays work is pretty simple. The organizers pick two cities that are about 200 miles apart and then 12-to-14 runners ... (click for more)
