Dunwoody completed the first sweep of the boys’ and girls’ DeKalb County Junior Varsity Cross Country Championships for the first time since 2010 with victories on Thursday at the Druid Hills Middle School course.
Lakeside last completed the sweep in the 2010 season over Chamblee (girls) and Dunwoody (boys).
The Lady Wildcats (19) bested the Lakeside Lady Vikings (37) for the fifth consecutive year with five finishers in the Top 10. Druid Hills followed in third (89) with Chamblee (99) fourth, Stephenson (145) in fifth and Tucker (166) in sixth.
Dunwoody sophomore Chloe Thomas took the individual title with a time of 14:23.91 while sophomore teammate Julie Hensley (14:39.37) was runner-up and freshman Kathryn Marion (14:41.07) followed her teammates in third. Sophomore Kate Hudson (14:57.58) was fifth and freshman Megan Johnson (15:19.63) was eighth as Dunwoody dominated the Top 10.
The Wildcats (21) also claimed five spots in the Top 10, including the first three to cross the line, to knock off the five-time defending champions Lakeside Vikings (53).
Eighth grader Max Mowrer (11:20:30) averaged just over five minutes and 40 seconds per mile to win by 23 seconds over freshman teammate Samuel Mahle (11:43.24) and sophomore Max Marion (11:48.51) as Dunwoody went one-two-three in the boys’ race.
