Eleven team title streaks in state competition came to an end in the 2018-19 athletic calendar, but many endured and others more were created.

After the dust was settled in the final competition this month, Punahou still owns the four longest active championship streaks in all HHSAA sports — girls tennis (17 straight years), girls water polo (12), boys volleyball (eight) and girls cross country (seven). However, the Buffanblu had a lengthy one, girls golf, snapped at six years at the hands of Waiakea a few days ago.

Of the seven longest enduring streaks, Hawaii Prep in girls Division II soccer (six years) is the only non-Punahou team.
