Dalton Swimmers Nip Ooltewah To Remain Unbeaten

Calhoun Also Unbeaten In White After Victory At Fort Oglethorpe

Tuesday, June 24, 2014 - by Special to the Chattanoogan.com

The Dalton Dolphins are on a mission.

Swimming at home against the Ooltewah Tidal Waves Monday night, the Dolphins remained perfect after five meets with the 394-363 victory, setting up a big showdown with Signal Mountain next Monday in Dalton.

The Green Giants, who lost to Dalton on June 12, stayed within striking distance at 4-1 with a weather-shortened 246-170 win at Cleveland.

In other meets, the Calhoun Blue Barracudas remained unbeaten in the White Division with an impressive 394-331 win at Fort Oglethorpe while the Ringgold Tiger Sharks evened their record at 2-2 with a 411-319 win over the Waterdogs.

Fairyland had a slim 24-20 lead over Country Club atop Lookout when that meet was suspended by weather.  Ironically, these same two teams got suspended by the storm on June 5.  A makeup date has yet to be determined.

Dismal Educator Teaching At UTC - And Response

Roy Exum,  People are talking about the inability of UTC to turn out high quality teachers. Well, should any university be expected to turn a sow's ear into a silk purse? We all know how our school system students fail miserably on national scholastic aptitude tests as a whole.  Forget Tcap tests, those are teacher tests not meant for measuring student progress, but ...

Roy Exum: Man’s Need To ‘Jaw’

On the first day of every month, I’ve gotten into the habit of taking a stroll in “my garden.” I mix up the “orchids” (good stuff) and “onions” (bad stuff) that has idled in my brain from the month before and most people seem to like it. I know I do. One of the “onions” for this January read like this: “AN ONION to the disappointing realization Chattanooga no longer has Bill Kilbride ... (click for more)
