Save the date. May 15, 2012 marks the 100th straight dual meet win for Bishop Feehan boys track. The Shamrocks (5-0) reached the milestone when they defeated Martha’s Vineyard, 88-48.
Coach Bob L’Homme traced the team’s last dual meet loss all the way back to 1999. That’s 13 straight Eastern Athletic Conference titles for the Shamrocks.
“When you’re at 50 or 60 wins, the coach might know it, but you don’t say anything,” he said. “We knew we were close last year and we prided ourselves on carrying on the tradition.”
The current Shamrocks were proud to be the team that hit win No. 100, but their achievement is only made possible by a tradition of success under L’Homme’s leadership.
“Being on the team that finally did it, they were pretty excited,” said L’Homme.
