Alexander Central Sets Record For Consecutive Softball Wins


       TAYLORSVILLE–Alexander Central High School's softball program has put another remarkable record into the North Carolina High School Athletic Association Record Book.

       Tuesday night's 10-0 victory over West Iredell ran the Cougars' record on the season to 18-0, but even more amazing is the fact that it was Alexander Central's 84th consecutive victory in fast-pitch softball, establishing a new NCHSAA record.  The streak began back in 2013.

       Central Cabarrus held the previous record of 83, with a streak that ran from 2004 into 2006.

       Alexander Central is coached by Monte Sherrill, and the Cougars have won eight NCHSAA state championships during his tenure, including three in slow-pitch and then five in fast-pitch, including titles in 2013 and '14. The Cougars were 35-0 last year.

      Congratulations to the Cougar softball program!
