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.
