2023 MOC Streakers

Streakers! Longest Active Streaks Qualifying for Meet of Champs

It’s great if you were on a team competing to win a division championship this past Saturday. For other teams, the goal was to qualify for the elite Meet of Champions to be held this coming Saturday at Alvirne High.  This is the big dance for the vast majority of schools in NH.  It is like icing on the cake for individuals as well.  Unique to only a few sports, the idea of being able to truly crown the best in NH is incredibly enticing! The top 7 teams from D-1, the top 6 schools from D-2, and the top 5 teams from D-3 qualifying.

Some teams seem to make it to the Meet of Champions every year – but it’s hard to be consistently that good, year in, year out. Of the 144 teams in the state (boys and girls squads from 19 schools in D-1, 21 in D-2, and 32 in D-3, boys and girls), only 9 programs have current streaks of at least 5 years in a row.

So, the Oyster River boys now own the longest current active streak. They’ve qualified for the Meet of Champions 24 years in a row, every year since 1990. The longest current girls streak is now held by Hanover, who has made it 22 years in a row beginning in 2001.

The all-time streak record is held by the Manchester Central girls. They made it 32 years in a row from 1983-2014. The Central streak came to an end in 2015.

Here’s the list of active streaks of 5 years or longer. If we have missed a team, comment below.
