The moment the high school scored the run which secured their record breaking 84th win in a row the Blue Devils just walked off as it was just another win. They showed that they were not moved and so it wasn’t a big deal for them. But the huge Gatorade shower their coach got from them showed something else. This is  a rather small school from rural Iowa who beat the Twin Cedars Bussey High for 10-0 in the six innings they played yesterday which set the national high school record for many consecutive wins. Prior to that it was Portsmouth High school in New Hampshire who set the mark for its streak of 83 wins in a row and still kicking. The Clippers also won their state title back in Spring.

The win by the school has also clinched them a trip next week to the state tournament who will play in Iowa’s smallest classification. Mertensdale St. Marys finished a good 43-0 and have won the state crown just one year ago. Given their recent streak the Blue Devils are on a roll and they are the big favourites to reach the gal which they insist is very important and even more important than their streak. Football lines

Justin Dehmer the coach for Mertensdale St. Mary said “It means that we’ve done something that nobody else has ever done,” “It’s pretty special. Our guys are well aware of what we just did. I know there will be a celebration tonight and we’re going to be all excited. But we know we’ve got business to take care of.”

Tim Hopley said on Monday that he was not bothered in the very least about his team’s record and it being in jeopardy but he has certainly grown to admire his Midwestern peers from a huge distance. Football betting lines

Hopely speaking to the Associated press said “I think it’s awesome. I think it’s very cool, to be honest with you. I don’t think when we set the record back in May, we thought it would only last weeks, basically, before someone else came along,”

Dehmer said “We’re extremely talented. We definitely have a lot of really good baseball players who have a lot of experience coming into the season. But the biggest thing, and the most important thing, is just our mental approach to the game,” “We just try our best to play one pitch at a time. I know it sounds pretty cliche, but there’s a lot that goes into playing one pitch at a time.”
