Cedar Rapids Washington Swimming. I believe they're up to 27 state championships dating back to 1961 (26 coming in the first 36 years). I also read recently that they just won their 46th straight district title. I understand that swimming is not a very high-profile sport, but I doubt any other school in any other sport has put up championship numbers like this.
I have thought for a long time that there should be a parochial class added to even things out. I agree with some of the other posters about possible recruiting of athletes going on under the guise of academics. Just a quick look at the state tourney fields for both girls and boys makes one wonder is such schools are on a level playing field with the others in their respective classes.
On a side note, I was at Vets when Keota snapped Palmer's 103 gm winning streak.
10 years ago there were 37 state championship banners hanging on the wall in the City High gym but I haven't recounted recently.
My son-in-law was on a City High team that won 3 State Track championships and 2 State Football championships. My daughter was on teams that won a Volleyball championship and two State Track championships.
Winning both the Boys and Girls State Basketball Championship last year has to impress someone.
