Arabia Mountain High carved a new piece of school history on the athletic front at Lakeside High School over the weekend.
The Rams baseball program took center stage last Saturday, sweeping past talented teams from Decatur and Dunwoody on the way to claiming the Randy Case DeKalb County Junior Varsity Baseball Tournament title for the first time.
Arabia Mountain first knocked off regular season Blue Division champion Decatur in the semifinals by a score of 12-5.
Regular season Red Division Dunwoody joined the Rams in the championship round with a tough 6-3 decision over Stephenson in the second semifinal.
Arabia Mountain then wasted little time in taking control of the final, with an 11-6 triumph over the Wildcats.
Ram players rushed the field once the historic victory was secured, tackling head coach Kelvin Middlebrooks in a celebration pileup. A couple of players also ran to the dugout and grabbed a cooler to add the traditional water dousing on their leader.
Arabia Mountain finished second to Stephenson in the final regular season White Division standings with a 5-1-1 record.
The Rams also registered impressive decisions over Redan (11-2) April 22 and Tucker (10-3) April 23 in first round action of the tournament in advancing out of the Tucker site pool play.
Arabia Mountain scored 44 runs and allowed only 16 over four total games in capturing the first county junior varsity baseball championship in school history.
