University of Georgia athlete Taylor Dale, a former multi-time state champion for the Dalton High School swimming and diving team, has performed well in his freshman season with the Bulldogs. He swims the 100- and 200-yard backstroke events and also swims the backstroke leg of the team’s medley relay squads. With the SEC meet just a few weeks away, Dale hopes to help the Bulldogs win a conference title and also qualify as an individual for the NCAA meet and U.S. Olympics team. (Contributed Photo)
