Historic Shanley (N.D.) girls basketball streak snapped at 76 games

The longest active winning streak in North Dakota high school sports has come to an end, with the Fargo Shanley girls basketball team losing to Fargo Davies 45-41 on Tuesday.

Shanley’s streak ended at 76 consecutive victories — a span that included three straight Class A state championships.

North Dakota High School Activities Association spokesman Tom Mix says the streak is considered the modern record for Class A girls basketball, dating to the mid-1970s. Shanley’s streak began in January 2014.

The modern record for Class B is 63 straight wins by Minot Ryan. That streak ended in December 2014, when Ryan was beaten by Shanley in a mixed-class matchup.
