Dalton State roundup: Good weekend for cross country

Dalton State College’s men finished fourth and the women’s team was 10th Saturday at the Berry Invitational in Rome.

In the men’s 8K (4.97 miles), which had a 22-team field, Paul Patterson’s 18th-place finish in 26 minutes, 44.61 seconds led the way for the Roadrunners as they finished with 117 points — behind Tennessee Wesleyan (38), Lee University (59) and Georgia Tech (78).

Also competing for the Roadrunners were Isaac Pacheco (26th, 27:06.04); Brody Cook (28th, 27:10.29); Rafael Pacheco (42nd, 27:39.02); Jose Limas (46th, 27:44.59); Parker Cook (48th, 27:54.62); Aurelio Jacobo (138th, 31:33.16) and Garrett Williams (139th, 136.42).

In the women’s 6K (3.7 miles), Natalie Espinoza Hensley (21st, 24:03) led the way for the Roadrunners (264 points). Georgia was first in the women’s meet with 34 points.

Also competing for Dalton State were Nayeli Jacobo (28th, 24:28.01); Julie Parham (64th, 26:20.82); Amairany Vidana (82nd, 27:01.82); Mikayla Moran (90th, 27:28.38); Maggie Kalafut (98th, 27:43.69); Jessica Brock (111th, 28:19.52); Zaira Martinez (117th, 28:45.36); Jasmin Sanchez (124th, 29:16.73) and Karla Sanchez (133rd, 30:41.90).

Dalton State coaches Margie Bruner and Andy Meyer were extremely excited about the results.

“Each runner had a personal best time,” Bruner said

Added Meyer, “It was the first 6K run for all of the women, so naturally they all also had personal bests.”

• In women’s volleyball, the Roadrunners lost 29-27, 25-18, 26-11 to visiting College of Coastal Georgia on Sunday morning.

Dalton State’s last lead in the opening game was at 25-24, and Coastal Georgia (19-9) never trailed in the final two games.

Alyne Bianchi had seven kills and 14 digs to lead the Roadrunners (6-12), while Clarissa Weber chipped in nine assists and Michala Askew had eight.

• In tennis, Dalton State took part in the Grizzly Classic this past weekend at Georgia Gwinnett College in Lawrenceville .

The event — which featured several flighted singles and doubles brackets but did not include overall team results — was just the second competition for the first-year Roadrunners.

On Sunday, Chelsea Powell made it into the quarterfinals of her B flight before falling 8-6.

Dalton State’s women’s A flight singles players — Laurie-Sophie Winter and Diana Narino — each lost in the second round. Narino and Winter advanced to the quarterfinals in doubles play before falling.

Maria Alejandra Bejaranos made it to the second round of the B flight before falling.

In men’s competition, Hadyn Fava made it to the semifinals of the C flight before falling.

Nikolay Nikiforov and Lucas de Souza lost in the second round of the A flight, while Adam Hornby advanced to the second round in the B flight.

Dalton State won’t return to action until Feb. 2, when the men host North Georgia University at Lakeshore Park in Dalton. Both Roadrunners squads will play at Georgia Gwinnett College on Feb. 5, with the women’s home opener Feb. 8 against Snead State Community College of Boaz, Ala.
