The Baltimore Sun

Taking a look back at the McDonogh girls lacrosse team’s 198-game winning streak, which ended Friday night with a 10-8 loss to Notre Dame Prep:

>>Last loss: The Eagles had not lost since April 11, 2009, when they fell to Canandaigua (N.Y.). Their last loss to a Maryland team came in the 2008 IAAM A Conference final against John Carroll.

>>The victims: Since McDonogh’s streak began, 43 opponents from nine states, Washington and Ontario, Canada, have taken their shots at ending the Eagles’ run.

>>National record: The streak falls 20 games shy of what is believed to be the national record for any high school team without an individual component such as tennis or gymnastics. Baskin (La.) won 218 straight girls basketball games from 1947 to 1953.

>>The start: It began with a win over Winters Mill on April 13, 2009. On April 17, 2014, it grew to 104, surpassing Mount Hebron’s previous national record of 103 set in 2007.
