Dalton State Squads Hit The Road Friday

Tuesday, September 10, 2013

The Dalton State Lady Roadrunner volleyball team goes for two in a row Friday as they travel up Lookout Mountain to meet Covenant College at 7 p.m.


Dalton State swept host Truett-McConnell College in Cleveland, Ga. last week three sets to none.


Covenant is off to a 2-3 start going into a Wednesday night match with Agnes Scott in Decatur.

The Dalton State men’s and women’s cross country teams visit Milledgeville, Ga.,  Friday night for the Bobcat Invitational meet hosted by Georgia College and State University.


The women’s 5K run starts at 6 p.m.  Participating schools include Dalton State, the hosts from Georgia College & State University, University of South Carolina at Aiken, South Georgia College, Gordon State, and Young Harris College.


The men’s 8K begins at 6:30 p.m. Competing schools are Dalton State, the hosts Georgia College & State University, Armstrong State University, South Georgia College, Gordon State, and Young Harris College.


Both Roadrunner cross country teams started their seasons last Friday evening in the PowerAde Invitational at Moccasin Bend, hosted by the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.


The Dalton State men finished with a team time less than three minutes behind Bryan College of  Dayton, TN.  Bryan is currently ranked #7 in the nation in the most recent National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics poll.


Freshman Paul Patterson of Cleveland, Tn. led the DS men in the 5K with a time of 16:36:92.  Freshman Natalie Espinoza-Hensley led the Lady Roadrunner with a 2 mile time of  12:23:89.


After the opening event, Patterson said his eyes were opened to “the speed of college running.” The race gave the talented first year teams an opportunity to see other college teams.

Could The Marriage Decision Spark A New Independence Day?
