Dalton State Men’s Tennis Will Play Sunday

Tuesday, April 22, 2014 - by Bob Beavers

The Dalton State men’s tennis team has picked up one final tennis competition to end the inaugural season.

The Roadrunners (13-5) will entertain SCAD (Savannah College of Art and Design) Atlanta Sunday at Lakeshore Park Tennis Center. First serve is set for 11:00 a.m.

Dalton State escaped a February 21 match-up in Atlanta with a 5-4 victory. Sunday’s action will be a make-up of a rained-out event here.

The visiting Bees (10-4) have captured the Appalachian Athletic Conference Championships (both regular season and tournament). With the AAC championships will come a trip to the NAIA National Championships in Mobile, Al. on May 13.

Dalton State athletics are not eligible for post season play. Because they made the national tournament, the SCAD Atlanta men can play the Roadrunners on Sunday. SCAD Atlanta women didn’t make the national event. As a result, they are through for the current season.

“This is a great opportunity for our guys to finish the season against a qualifier for the NAIA National Tournament,” Dalton State tennis coach Zach Rogers said Tuesday
