Henderson High won the first tennis title in 1978 by capturing the Class AAA boys’ state championship to put DeKalb County Schools in the forefront.

Lakeside followed two years later with the 1980 state title and quickly snatched the 1981 and 1982 championships as DeKalb County Schools started its powerful run in the 1980s. The Vikings streak was just part of 15 state titles won in boys tennis action in the decade of the 1980s.

Dunwoody won all four of its state championships in the run by capturing the 1983, 1985, 1988 and 1989 titles.

Lakeside won the most recent tennis title in 2001.

Dunwoody heads up the girls state title winners with a pair of state championships to its credit.

Dunwoody opened the first girls sanctioned state championships in 1980 with a victory. The Lady Wildcats repeated in 1981 and were joined by Druid Hills in the winners circle.

Lakeside won the fourth girls state title  in 1984.

Chamblee became just the fourth team to win a state title and ended a 33-year drought for the DeKalb girls’ with the 2017 Class 5A championship. It was the Lady Bulldogs, who finished 25-0, first state title and DeKalb’s fifth overall.

The Lady Bulldogs repeated for a back-to-back run with their 2018 state title to tie Dunwoody with 2 state titles and with the back-to-back titles. Chamblee finished 22 in 2018 to extend its consecutive match win streak to 47 over the two seasons.
