Caltech ends 310 game losing streak

A few weeks ago everyone was making a huge deal about the fact that the Cleveland Cavaliers had a losing streak of 26 games.

Well compared to California Institute of Technology (Caltech), the Cavs have nothing to worry about.

Last night the Caltech Beavers snapped their 310 game conference losing streak. That's right, 310 games.

Their last conference win was over 26 years ago. I wasn't even born the last time the Beavers won a conference game!

Caltech is a Division III school and plays in the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. (Notice I said "plays" not "competes") However with the win yesterday it looks like perhaps brighter things are to come for the program.

The Beavers also hold the all-time losing streak for Division III basketball programs at 207 games. They snapped that streak back in 207. That record in fact is the longest losing streak by any program.

And on a side note, the Beavers soccer team almost reached that mark, but fell short at just 201 consecutive losses. They ended their losing back in March of 2009.
