A Look Ahead: Running takes over the local sports calendar
This week is a big one for runners. Since Dalton State College’s volleyball team is getting lonely as the only sport competing for the school, cross country will finally sprint into the action.
The men’s and women’s squads begin their season at 5 p.m. Friday at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga’s PowerAde Invitational at Moccasin Bend Race Course.
A Look Ahead: North Murray breaking in turf
You’ll hear a lot about Dalton High School’s season-opening football game at Harmon Field on Friday night versus Ringgold. But that night, another local football program has a big new beginning planned.
North Murray will celebrate its new artificial turf field and field house at 7 p.m. at Mountaineer Stadium, with the annual “Black and Gold” scrimmage game following.
The Mountaineers are the second program — after Christian Heritage — to get a turf playing surface at its home field.
A Look Ahead: Teams back on gridiron this week
Thursday marks the first time in 264 days a local high school football team will take the field against another team.
It has been long enough.
Dalton will host Adairsville at 7 p.m. and Christian Heritage will welcome North Murray at 7:30 p.m. in two scrimmages, offering fans a chance for a sneak peak at what their teams will bring to the 2013 season.
A Look Ahead: Ingle’s youth camp to run until Thurs.
If you want a chance to learn from a national championship-winning college basketball coach, this is the week to take advantage of it.
Dalton State College men’s basketball coach Tony Ingle — the winner of a NCAA Division II title as the head coach at Kennesaw State University will host two youth basketball camps starting today at ChristChurch Presbyterian at 510 S. Tibbs Road in Dalton.
A Look Ahead: Summer of fun camps concluding
The last wave of summer camps are crashing against the shore this week and the next, with numerous schools and organizations hosting sports-related camps and one local high school planning a volleyball match for its alumni.
If you’re a kid who’s been spending the summer inside, playing video games and eating junk food — like I did when I was younger — then you may need to take the final two weeks of summer to get back in football mode for the upcoming fall season.
A Look Ahead: Matthews’ camp brings a week full of activities
Perhaps you’re a young football player interested in getting an offseason jump on the game. Or you might be a “Joe” basketball player. Maybe you just want an autograph.
A Look Ahead: Tourney continues to thrive
After months of preparation, more than three dozens stories written on the participating teams and summer workouts by those players, the Southeastern 7-on-7 Championship presented by AstroTurf returns to Dalton for the third installment of the tournament organized by The Daily Citizen.
A Look Ahead: Dolphins battle up current
The Dalton Dolphins know how many points they need to win by, and the regular season title will come down to three dozen. More than 36, and the tiebreaker is theirs, along with the straight shot to a third consecutive regular season title
The summer league swim team faces its top rival, Signal Mountain, today at 5:30 p.m. at the Dalton Parks and Recreation Department’s John Davis Recreation Center for a chance to avenge an earlier loss in this year’s Chattanooga Area Swim League Season.
A Look Ahead: Showcase event hits diamond
You could be a graduating senior yet to find a home. Or you could be an upcoming senior looking to get a head start on impressing college baseball coaches and scouts.
Maybe you’re even younger and just want to get your name out there.
A Look Ahead: Diamond is last chance for Georgia
So far this summer, it has been a bitter pill to swallow for the Georgia All-Stars in the annual Stump on Sports Tennessee-Georgia All-Star Classics.
The players from the Volunteer state have won four out of five contests in the games, which will conclude this week with baseball on Tuesday and softball on Wednesday.
The results have been even more surprising after Saturday’s Tennessee sweep of both the boys and girls soccer games.
