According to Dalton State head coach Ben Rickett, "A lot has happened since our last conference championship and when it comes to April, it would have been two years. It is extremely humbling to be put in this position, but it also means the target on your back gets bigger and you get everyone's best. Our process is the same each year and this year is no different. We have a young team with some experience so we will see how they develop throughout the season."
