2012, Week 16: 90-year Record to Fall

Madison and Santa Fe Christian are about to break the oldest record, often tied, in  San Diego County.

The Warhawks (13-1) and Eagles (11-3)  will play their 15th games of the 2012 season when the Southern champions tee up in State Bowl Championship games against Kentfield Marin Catholic and Modesto Central Catholic,  respectively, this week at Cal State Dominguez Hills in Carson.

San Diego High was the first area squad to play 14 games.  The Hilltoppers, as they were  better known,  were 10-4 in 1922, the season ending in a 17-6, state playoffs loss to Bakersfield.

Sixteen other area prep squads have completed 26 seasons of 14 games,  including coach Herb Meyer’s powerful El Camino Wildcats, who went the long way five years in a row, 1989-93.
