One of the most interesting records going in the state right now was preserved through the 2011 season.
Cokeville, in winning the Class 1A 11-man championship, scored in all 11 of its games this fall, extending to 141 its streak of consecutive scoring games. The Panthers haven’t been shut out since 1997. It’s the longest such streak in state history.
Of course, the Panthers were shut out in regulation once this year, against Mountain View, but scored three points in overtime in a 6-3 loss to keep the streak alive.
Oddly enough, the second-longest streak in state history is current, too, as Buffalo has gone 105 games since being shut out. The Bison’s streak runs back to 2001.
Here are the top 10 active streaks in the state, through the end of this year:
1. Cokeville, 141 games
2. Buffalo, 105 games
3. Gillette, 78 games
4. Southeast, 74 games
5. Natrona, 73 games
6. Sheridan, 61 games
7. Douglas, 52 games
8t. Greybull and Midwest, 39 games
10. Ten Sleep, 34 games
