History

Dunwoody softball owns DeKalb's only two fastpitch state titles.

Dunwoody softball owns DeKalb’s only two fastpitch state titles.

DeKalb County Schools Schools could be the birthplace of fastpitch softball on the state level. The county had 18 of the 21 teams that participated in the inaugural season in 1993.

The other three entries were Marist, Berkmar and Meadowcreek. Dunwoody established itself as the powerhouse over the first four years of state competition by compiling a record of 101-15 under co-coaches Lynn Maddox and Cheryl Finke.

The Lady Wildcats won at least 17 games every year from 1993 to 1998, while finishing first or second over the first four (1993 to 1996). Dunwoody lost in the inaugural state title series after winning the first of a three-game set against Meadowcreek, losing the final game 2-1.

The Lady Wildcats bounced back for a 26-3 record and a four-game sweep in the state tournament in 1994 to claim the county’s first of two state titles, both owned by Dunwoody.

The 1995 title went to Oconee County with two straight losses in the final series. The 1996 season was another bounce back year for the Lady Wildcats with their second state title in three years.

DeKalb went through a four year dry spell in reaching the state playoffs until the 2001 season when Tucker advanced to the Class AAAA state tournament, but came up short in the bid for the title.
