With their 55-33 victory over the Washington-Lee Generals on Nov. 4, the undefeated Yorktown Patriots (10-0, 7-0) have won 18 straight regular-season National District contests over a three-season stretch.
That mark ties the district record for the longest winning streak, held with the Edison Eagles.
Last season, Yorktown finished 7-0 when the Patriots were the district champions. In 2009, Yorktown won its final three league high school games.
Edison won 18 straight games in recent seasons when Vaughn Lewis was the Eagles’ head coach.
The Patriots, who are the No. 2 seed in the Northern Region Division 5 playoffs and host a first-round game on Friday, Nov. 11 against the McLean Highlanders (6-4) at 7:30 p.m., can set a new district win streak early next season. That win could come in week two of the 2012 campaign when Yorktown plays at Wakefield.
