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

Fruit Basket Turnover

I have been teaching for 21 years now, so I’ve been through my share of school leaders. Every one of them taught me something important. Whether it was Don Bishop from Red Bank High School who, after almost 30 years at Red Bank, taught me to invest in the longevity of my career, Wade Kelly who taught me to thoroughly weigh options before making a decision, Gail Chuy who taught me ...

I have seen a lot of human beings who have gotten themselves in terrible messes in my time and more self-induced agony than I want to recall.
