When the SID was doing some research on the wrestling & swim/dive meets, he got curious on the longest league championships in the different sports. There have been 13 championship consecutive win streaks of five or more in 10 different sports. CHL league competition began in the fall of 1985 for all sports except boys' & girls' swimming & diving. Their league titles started during the 1999-2000 school year. The all time leader is Indian Hill boys' tennis. They won 23 straight tennis titles from 1986 to 2008. The Braves also hold the record for most league titles. They have 27 of 28 titles (Wyoming won in 2009). The longest current streak is Indian Hill girls' tennis. They have won 17 in a row.
