The Streak Ends

De La Salle’s High School’s 151 game winning streak comes to an end. Twelve seasons without a loss with 43 shutouts along the way. When a winning streak comes to an end, you want it to be at the hands of a better team. And by all reports, Belleview was the better team.

I doubt that any De La Salle players wanted the streak to end. But I’m sure that many are relieved to move out from underneath its shadow. The streak was 12 years in the making. That’s a heavy load for teenage shoulders.
