The Return of Intercollegiate Athletics to Dalton State

  • On February 1, 2012, Dalton State held a press conference to introduce the new director of the Dalton State intercollegiate athletics program, Derek Waugh.
  • On August 2, 2012 Dalton State held a press conference to introduce the new head men's basketball coach, Tony Ingle.
