Roadrunners hit the books

Dalton State’s athletic teams have been successful on the playing field in their first year of competition with volleyball winning 10 games, the men’s and women’s cross country runners finishing with nationally-competitive times, and the men’s basketball team sitting at 14-1 heading into Thursday’s game.

That success is not just limited to the field of play. The new student-athletes at Dalton State have also done well in the classroom.  

In their first semester on campus, the recruited and/or scholarship student-athletes of Dalton State posted a cumulative 3.02 grade point average. The women’s tennis team led the way with a cumulative grade point average of 3.34, followed closely by men’s cross country with a 3.31. Out of all the student-athletes, 48 percent posted a grade point average of 3.0 or higher. Twelve student-athletes made the dean’s list. Former Northwest Whitfield High School standouts Brody Cook and Parker Cook of men’s cross country and Adam Hornby of men’s tennis each had perfect 4.0 grade point averages.

“In looking at the athletic department as a whole, it has been a successful semester academically,” Dalton State athletic director Derek Waugh said. “Adjusting to a first semester at college can be difficult, so I expect our students to do even better as time progresses. With any large group of students, you are going to have some that do exceptionally well and some that have struggled, but as a whole, I believe our student-athletes have a very positive effect on the academic reputation of Dalton State.”
