Championships once again in 2013 as the field events and prelims are set
for Saturday (March 30) at 9 a.m.
The Dunwoody Wildcats are going for their third consecutive title in 2013.
The Wildcats won their first ever county title in 2011 and made it two
consecutive in 2012 with a tight 71-70 victory over the Lakeside Vikings.
Coach Nathaniel Webb’s squad is looking to become just the seventh
DeKalb team to win three consecutive county titles. Redan was the last to
do so, winning six consecutive titles from 2004-2009.
Southwest DeKalb held off Dunwoody 113.5 to 90 to win the school’s sixth
consecutive girls’ county championship and 11th overall in 2013.
The Lady Panthers face a tough test from reigning Class AAAA state
champion Redan, Class AAAAA runner-up Martin Luther King Jr. and Dunwoody
as they go for seven in a row.
The long jump kicks off the field event finals at 9 a.m. on Saturday with
the track prelims set to begin at 3 p.m. with the 4x100 meter relays.
Two finals will be run in the track events on Saturday including the
boys’ 1600 meter run and the girls’ 3200 meter run.
