Florida HS Wrestling Team Loses for First Time in Over 30 Years

Talk about a streak! From an AP story on SI.com:

The Brandon High School wrestling team’s national record of 459 consecutive dual victories since 1973 has ended. South Dade High School topped Brandon 32-28 Saturday night in the finals of the Jim Graves “Beat the Streak” Tournament.

Brandon’s streak began nearly 34 years ago, after Jim Graves, for whom the tournament is named, took over as the Eagles’ wrestling coach, despite having no previous experience with the sport. Graves ended up coaching the team for nine years.

The streak included 66 individual state champions and 18 team titles.

The last time Brandon HS lost, Nixon was in office, “The Sting” won Best Picture and the Oakland A’s won the World Series.

According to another article, after his team was defeated, Brandon coach Russ Cozart jogged across the mat to hug the South Dade coach and then shook hands with every wrestler on the South Dade team.

Great streak, better sportsmanship. Good to see that at any level of sports.
