It didn't matter that the Dalton Dolphins had to take a road trip to Signal Mountain on Thursday night. The trip home was probably a whole lot shorter and much happier after the visitors had handed the Green Giants their first loss of the season in a Chattanooga Area Swim League meet.
Ava Whited, Oscar Chenard and Reese Bingham all scored the maximum 19 points as the Dolphins improved to 2-0 with the 398-366 victory.
High-point scorers for the Green Giants included Laken Coppinger and Jewel Gordon with 19 points.
Signal Mountain is now in a tie for second with Stuart Heights after the Sharks pinned a 408.5-345.5 loss on the Ooltewah Tidal Waves with both now 2-1.
Other meets saw the Fairylnd Flash stay unbeaten in the Red Division with a 425-330 win over the Waterdogs while the Ridgeside Dolphins did the same in the White Division with a 309-259 win over Big Ridge.
