The 2013 DeKalb County Golf Championships are set for the Mystery Valley

Golf Club on MondaY (April 1), beginning at 8 a.m.

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.
