Dalton State athletics teams begin their first season as a member of the Southern States Athletics Conference in the fall with an August 23 volleyball Tri-Match in the newly remodeled Bandy Gymnasium..
“I’m super excited to be playing in the SSAC this year,” said Lady Roadrunner volleyball coach Bruna Langner.
“It’s one of the best conferences for volleyball in the country,” she added. “Playing good teams in the conference will make us so much better. I am counting the days to fall and ready for the competition to start.”
Coach Langner announced the tentative 2014 schedule that begins with Tennessee Temple, Milligan College, and Dalton State meeting at Bandy.
Dalton State and Tennessee Temple will square off at 11:00 a.m., Milligan and Tennessee Temple play at 1:00 p.m., and the Lady Roadrunners face Milligan at 3:00 p.m.
