Tiny Oklahoma School Closes-in on 8-Man Record for Consecutive Wins

A tiny school in northwest Oklahoma is closing-in on history.

The Shattuck Indians are going after their 89th straight win today against Balko.

A victory would put Shattuck one win away from tying the national 8-man record for consecutive wins that is currently held by Morrison, also from the Sooner State.

Actually, the Indians had expected to tie the record with a victory today, but the Oklahoma Secondary Schools Activities Association ruled earlier this week that a 2003 scheduled game against Yarborough that was cancelled and ruled a forfeit, was no longer a win. That left the Indians win streak 88 instead of 89 going into today's contest.

If Shattuck wins today, it will be able to tie the record when it plays Sharon-Mutual on October 23rd. The record breaker would then come on October 30th against Goodwell.

Shattuck's current streak began in the 2003 season. Morrison's record-setting win streak was set from 1989 to 1995.

Check back later tonight to see if Shattuck is able to pull within one of the record.
