DSC volleyball splits down on the coast

Dalton State College’s women’s volleyball team split a pair of best-of-five matches Saturday in Brunswick, losing in four games to host College of Coastal Georgia before sweeping Macon’s Wesleyan College.

The Roadrunners (9-14) won their opening game against Coastal Georgia 25-21 but dropped the next three, 25-10, 25-12, 28-26. Dalton State’s standout performers against the Mariners included Alyne Bianchi (12 digs, 10 kills), Clarissa Weber (16 assists, six digs), Tori Pierce (15 digs), Savannah Nelson (11 kills), Anna Dykes (10 kills) and Karly Newman (seven digs, five kills).

Coastal Georgia (23-9) is in second place in the Southern States Athletic Conference. Dalton State is playing a non-conference schedule in its inaugural season, but Roadrunners coach Bruna Langner has paid attention to how her players have performed against more established programs.

“We played well in games one and four,” Langner said in a release from Dalton State. “As the season winds down, I believe we are getting some great experience for next year. If we consistently play like we did in games one and four, we will be extremely competitive in a conference next year.”

Dalton State — which dropped Wesleyan’s season mark to 5-15 with its 25-17, 25-21, 25-11 victory — closes the season Tuesday with a 7 p.m. match at Chattanooga’s Tennessee Temple University.
