  • 26 Straight Hockey State Championships

    Mount St, Charles Academy, winners of 26 consecutive Rhode Island state hockey championships, finally had their streak snapped this weekend after being swept in a best of 3 series by Toll Gate High School, one of only 2 public schools in RI's elite division. I hate the school, and in many ways think the streak is a fraud, but it's still impressive. It's the only American high school to produce 2 #1 overall draft picks, Brian Lawton and Brian Berard; and other alumi in the NHL include Brian Boucher, Jeff Jillson, and Matthiu Schneider.

      Why do you hate them and in what ways is the streak is a fraud?

      Speaking of Brian Lawton, does anyone remember how he took the number 98 because he was almost as good as Gretzky?

        Spent a few years in Rhode Island. Any average basketball, baseball, hockey, or any other sports team from the State of Missouri would dominate there.

          Of course, the smallness of that state prolly only allows for what, two regional/sectional sites?

            I would be shocked if the best Missouri high school hockey team could come anywhere close to dominating high school hockey in Rhode Island.

              You're right about baseball and basketball, but I'd be willing to be just about anything that the top high school teams in Missouri would probably be afterthoughts in Rhode Island's top hockey division.
