The Dunwoody Wildcats continued their domination of the DCSD County Golf Championships by winning the title for the eighth consecutive season 311-318 over Lakeside on Tuesday at Sugar Creek Golf Club.
The Wildcats won the title outright for the seventh time in the past eight seasons having shared the title with Arabia Mountain in 2014 as the two teams finished in a tie after playing three playoff holes before darkness ended play.
Freshman Jackson Perry led the way for Dunwoody as his round of 73 tied with Cedar Grove junior Noah Kuranga who also shot a 73. The pair played sudden death with Perry paring the par 4 first hole to a bogey for Kuranga to get the medalist honors.
It was the second consecutive year for Kuranga to fall in a playoff for the top spot, having lost in a three-hole playoff a year ago.
Senior Tim Trembath (77) tied for third and junior Davis Brainard (79) tied for fourth and sophomore Nick Trembath (82) was fifth to account for the Dunwoody scoring.
Lakeside was the runner-up for the eighth consecutive season behind the play of senior Drew Smith who tied for third with a 77 and senior Tony Bryant and sophomore Zach Garlow who were tied for fourth with a 79.
Senior Imran Dewjee rounded out the scoring for the Vikings with an 83 to tie for sixth with Dunwoody sophomore Ben Warren.
Arabia Mountain was in third with a team score 365 led by junior Nylan Washington’s 77 which was in a three-way tie for third.
A three-way tie for 10th involved Arabia Mountain senior Charles Porch and freshman Torance Allen and Chamblee sophomore Jimmy McClendon at 92 on the day.
McClendon’s 92 along with sophomore Phil McCrery’s 94 helped the Bulldogs to come in under 400 at 394 to take fourth place in the team standings.
The Dunwoody Lady Wildcats made it three consecutive titles with a 190-229 win over the Tucker Lady Tigers who set a record for the their highest finish since the girls’ tournament was instituted in 2005.
Redan finished third with a team score of 251.
Dunwoody juniors Lauren Callahan and Olivia Vergura both shot 95 to tie for second in the individual standings and propel the Lady Wildcats to their three-peat. Callahan improved her score by nine strokes from a year ago when she also finished second. Vergura improved by 12 strokes from her third place finish last season.
Sophomore Pearl Arno contributed to the team win by qualifying for the full 18 holes and shooting a 132 to finish eighth overall.
Tucker junior Megan Hayes put together a round of 112 for fourth and fellow junior Daja Nicholson was fifth with a round of 117 to qualify Tucker for its second place finish.
