Dalton State Coach Jim McGrew said, "It is an honor to be picked by our peers as the preseason favorites. It is something that we appreciate and do not take for granted. We are in one of the toughest conferences in the country and understand that this team has not accomplished anything yet. This honor has to do with the past team's success. We have a lot of work to do to feel like we are ready for the postseason, but we look forward to the challenge in front of us."

The Roadrunners won last year's SSAC Championship by 35 strokes over Faulkner, with William Carey, Mobile and Loyola rounding out the top five.
