Vaughn is first for Dalton State College volleyball program

Kailey Vaughn likes the idea of staying at Dalton State College and being part of the very first Roadrunners women’s volleyball team.

The freshman, a 2012 graduate of Gordon County’s Sonoraville High School, became the first signee for Dalton State volleyball when she put her name on a letter of intent Tuesday at the college.

“It’s just a good school,” Vaughn said, “and I am really excited that they have a volleyball program starting this year and I am proud to be one of the inaugural signees.”  

She said the addition of athletics to campus — the school anticipates beginning competition in several sports during the 2013-14 school year after not having an intercollegiate varsity athletics program for decades — played a role in her decision to attend Dalton State.

“I knew there was going to be a volleyball program started, and I had hoped it would begin in time for me to play, Vaughn said. “It turned out for the best.”

Vaughn was a three-sport athlete at Sonoraville, participating in volleyball, basketball and track and field. Dalton State volleyball will begin in the fall and provide the first on-campus athletics for the school’s new sports program.

Roadrunners volleyball coach Bruna Langner, who excelled at Lee University in Cleveland, Tenn. — she is the program’s all-time leader in blocks, helped the Flames make the NAIA national tournament each of her four seasons and was inducted into the school’s athletic hall of fame this past fall — said she hopes to recruit a lot more local players, including current Dalton State students.

The Roadrunners anticipate becoming a member of the NAIA, and representatives of the organization were on campus Monday to tour future venues for the school’s athletic teams.
