Dalton Volleyball Improving, But Drops 2 In Kentucky

Saturday, August 31, 2013

Williamsburg, Ky. - The Dalton State volleyball team looked better, but lost two matches to Kentucky schools on the road Saturday.


Coach Bruna Langner said it was the best the played the Roadrunners have played this year.


“We let our emotions get the best of us,” Langner said of her young team.


The first-year team worked hard as a team with good play from the setters allowing more activity up the middle.  


Dalton State  (0-4) fell in the first match three games to one. “Savannah Nelson blocked well and scored a lot up the middle,” said Langner said following the loss to University of the Cumberlands to open the afternoon.


University of the Cumberlands won the first game 25 to 15.  The Roadrunners followed with a match two win, 25-22. UC then closed it out 11-25 and 24-26.


Dalton also won the second set in the loss to Berea College, but started slow with a 11-25 set one loss. DS came back in the second set 25-17 and made it close in the third 25-27. Berea won the final set 16-25.


The Birds travel to Cleveland, Ga., Tuesday night to take on Truett-McConnell College. The match will start at 7:00 p.m.
