CARMEL, Ind. (WTHR) - Some say win streaks are made to be broken.
The Carmel Lady Greyhounds have taken that to heart. They have won 33 consecutive state titles in swimming and diving.
If you stop by the Carmel Natatorium early in the morning or late in the afternoon, you’ll find the water churning.
It’s the home of the most successful girls’ program in the nation.
“This is their second practice of the day,” said coach Chris Plumb. “This morning, we were here at 5:30, come back to tonight’s practice ‘til 6. It’s not just today, it’s 50 weeks of the year, doubles every day, going all over the country to compete. It’s just consistency and high expectations. Put those things together and this is what breeds success.”
Dedication and drive. The Lady Greyhounds have built a culture second to none. They have the nation’s longest winning streak. Senior Avery Williams has been a part of the past three.
“It’s definitely awesome, definitely a privilege to be part of the 33 years. Going for 34 this year. We always talk about standing on the shoulders of a giant, knowing the culture that’s been put upon us, before we’ve gotten to high school, it’s really a big thing. We always honor that,” Williams said.
