Dunwoody extended its win streak in the boys’ 2018 DCSD County Golf Championships, but a four-year reign atop the girls’ standings came to an end on Thursday at Mystery Valley Golf Course.
Coach Doug Friedlander’s Wildcats placed five golfers in the Top 10 led by 2018 medalist senior Nick Trembath who carded a 79 good for a three-stroke win over teammate junior Jack Kardasha (82).
Dunwoody’s first four players put together a team total of 327 to outdistance Chamblee (363) and Lakeside (432) in the team standings. Dunwoody’s 10-yaear streak includes a three-hole playoff tie with Arabia Mountain in the 2014 championship.

Coach Kurt Koeplin’s Bulldogs had finished third the past two seasons, but broke Lakeside’s nine-year run as the runner-up to Dunwoody.
The girls’ championship went to a different team for the first time since 2013 as Coach Robert Bokelman’s Lady Vikings won a thrilling one-stroke, 191-192 victory over the Chamblee Lady Bulldogs to win the program’s first county championship since that 2013 season.

tournament’s low score on the girls’ side with a 91 to take medalist honors. Junior Kristen Nwadike was fourth with a 101 total on the day.
Lithonia junior Kayla Humes finished fifth with a 108 and Arabia Mountain’s Miracle Goolsby took home the final ribbon with her 111 in sixth.
