July 11--  Coach Tommy Dalley says one of his goals in life was to become a high school athletic director and he's happy that it happened at Vidalia High School.

The new VHS Athletic Director addressed the Vidalia Rotary Club Wednesday and said his new role is to support the coaches who lead the high school's athletic programs.  He wants to continue the school's winning tradition, but emphasized the most important thing coaches do is build character and instill positive values in young people.

Coach Dalley is proud of the athletic facilities at Vidalia High School and has identified two needs.  He says the school needs a resurfaced track and an eight-lane track allowing the school to host state track meets. He's also concerned about the future of the high school golf program because golf teams have nowhere to practice since both of Vidalia's golf courses closed in the past three years.

The new Athletic Director has instilled a winning boys basketball tradition at Vidalia High School since his arrival in 2008.  Dalley's teams have had two state championship appearances and three other visits to the Final Four.  The Indians won four consecutive region titles starting in 2012.  Coach Dalley's record at VHS is 255-65.

Previously Coach Dalley coached the Lady Barons at Brewton-Parker College four years and was the boys coach at Appling County for five years.

He and his wife, Wendy, have one son, Ty, who is a sophomore at Vidalia High School this year.

The Vidalia Rotary Club meets Wednesdays at noon at the Meadows Wellness Center.
