Dalton State’s female coaches to speak at Stilettos program

Since Title lX was passed in 1972, women have had exciting opportunities in athletics. Competitive sports can provide great leadership skills and open educational doors that can be a ticket to a better life.

Dalton State College has re-entered the world of collegiate sports. On Friday, Nov. 22, DSC’s female coaches — Margie Bruner, Michel Bates, Bruna Langner, Robyn Newell and Marsha Whitener — will speak on “The Impact and Benefit of Athletics on Young Women.”  

Bruner, DSC cross country coach, was a cross country and track athlete at Auburn University and has spent the last decade coaching and mentoring runners at Dalton High School and in the Whitfield County area.  

Bates, DSC director of tennis operations, is widely considered one of the finest female athletes ever to come out of the Dalton area. She pursued professional careers in both tennis and golf.

Langner, DSC head women’s volleyball coach, was a three-time NAIA All-American. She is known as an excellent recruiter and teacher of the game.

Newell, DSC head competitive cheer coach, was named Dalton State’s first competitive cheer coach in November 2012. She has more than 14 years of experience in coaching and instructing competitive cheer, gymnastics and tumbling.

Whitener, DSC assistant women’s golf coach, is one of the finest amateur women’s golfers in northwest Georgia. She has been the Ladies Club champion at The Farm 10 times and has been the Ladies Club champion at the Dalton Golf & Country Club 15 times.

It is important that young women be encouraged to participate and enjoy the higher quality of life that sports help them achieve. Join us in supporting these amazing coaches who are dedicated to developing young women in our community and beyond.
