The Dunwoody High School junior varsity baseball team will attempt to defend their 2011 title this weekend at home in the county’s baseball championship tournament.
The Wildcats earned the home team advantage for three weekend games by going a perfect 8-0 for the season in the county’s Red division.
The round robin format puts Stephenson High School and Martin Luther King Jr. in the same pool with Dunwoody. Columbia High School and Redan High School are the other top seeds and will host the same three-team format at their schools.
Dunwoody opens the tournament against Martin Luther King Jr. High school at 10 a.m. Saturday and follows that up with a game against Stephenson High School at 3 p.m.
Dunwoody won the 2011 tournament title as a division runner up. Last year, Dunwoody’s junior varsity team beat regular season division champion Lakeside High School 15-5.
Teams that qualify will go on to play in the semifinals and finals April 21 at the high school field for Druid Hills.
