The Dunwoody Wildcats are the four-time defending champions on the boys’
side and have won five titles under Coach Doug Friedlander since the
tournament was re-instated in 2005. The tournament was washed out by bad
weather in 2008.
Dunwoody returns four of its top six players from the 2012 tournament
victory, including senior Ryan Elmore, who has captured the medalist honors
three consecutive years (2010-12). The Wildcats set the low team score in
2012 with a combined 310 tally in taking their fourth consecutive title
(2009-2012) with Elmore’s 73 leading the way.
The 2012 runner-up junior Raul Oviedo shot a 75 at Mystery Valley as a
sophomore and sophomore Peter Trask was third with score of 80 as the
Wildcats swept the top three spots. Sophomore Corey Sullivan shot an even
100 as freshman for Dunwoody.
Lakeside was the runner-up to Dunwoody in 2012 and return seniors Peter
Pappas (80, 4th), Austin Bowman (89, tie 10th), John Choate (91, 15th) and
Andrew Perry (96, 19th) to challenge the Wildcats.
The Lakeside Lady Vikings are the returning girls’ champions, having won
four of the seven championships played since 2005. Coach Robert
Bokelman’s squad shot a team score of 216 to get past Arabia Mountain
(225) for the title in 2012.
Lakeside returns two of its three tournament qualifiers from a year ago in
senior Caroline Malone and sophomore Mackenzie Bowman. Seana Deas returns
for Arabia Mountain in 2013.
Two-time champion Sarah Karanga, a Columbia senior, returns to defend her
2012 crown she took with a round of 86 on her way to sixth place finish in
the Class AAA state tournament. Karanga also won the county championship
as a freshman in 2010.
