Schuylkill Haven loss ends impressive streak!

With Schuylkill Haven losing to Steel-High this past Friday, a very impressive streak is coming to an end. Since the inception of the state championships in 1988, the finals featured a school from the WNEP-16 viewing area. The viewing area is made up of all of District 2, and most of Districts 4 and the northern part of District 11 (above I-78).

This Friday when the finals begin, this area will be shut out for the first time in 21 seasons. Most of the appearances were made by Berwick, Southern Columbia and Mount Carmel. Hanover, Dallas, South Williamsport, Pottsville, Riverside, Marian Catholic, Schuylkill Haven, and Valley View also made the finals.

The streak is impressive since the area never had a AAAA representative and hasn't went 8 seasons without a AAA representative (Berwick 1997 to Pottsville 2005).

UPDATE: I somehow forgot Dunmore who made it to the final last season.
