Editor’s note: It had to happen eventually. Congrats to Clairton High for their record-setting run.
The longest active winning streak in American high school football was snapped at 66 games Friday night in Clairton’s 42-24 home loss to Monessen.
Clairton had not lost since Sept. 4, 2009. Its winning streak ended tied for the 10th-longest in American history.
The Clairton Bears have won the Pennsylvania Class A championship every year since 2009 but this year’s team was hit hard by graduation.
