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.
