Longest-running state streaks

HHSAA tennis girls singles champion Aylssia Fossorier of Punahou returns a forehand in her title match Saturday at Central Oahu Regional Park. Johnny Wilson/Special to the Star-Advertiser.

Now that the 2017-18 high school athletic calendar has wrapped up, it’s time to take an updated stock of who’s going streaking … when it comes to team championships.

Punahou, not surprisingly, owns seven of the 10 longest streaks spanning all sports and divisions (team titles only). Its 16 straight in girls tennis remains the gold standard in the time since its 26 consecutive boys tennis titles ended at the hands of ‘Iolani in 2017.

The longest streaks to come to an end in 2017-18 were of the seven-year variety: Pearl City’s boys bowling run, thanks to Mililani, and Hawaii Baptist’s dominance in Division II boys volleyball, because the Eagles moved up. Other notable stretches to end included Kapolei’s four-year spurt in boys judo, interrupted by Moanalua, and Campbell’s state three-peat in D-I softball ending while OIA West rival Leilehua claimed its first crown.

Without further ado, here’s the complete list, with an attached note about that team or league’s run in that sport. These are ACTIVE streaks only.
