Fort Worth high school team breaks 77-game loss streak

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — A high school football team in North Texas has broken its 77-game losing streak that dragged on for nearly eight years.

Fort Worth Diamond Hill-Jarvis on Thursday night defeated Dallas Conrad 40-12.

Fort Worth Independent School District spokesman Clint Bond said Friday that the last victory for the Eagles had been on Sept. 18, 2010, in a 31-7 win over Thomas Jefferson, another Dallas school.

Bond says Diamond Hill-Jarvis students celebrated Friday morning by lining the school hallways to welcome the victorious players, who marched through to the sound of drums and cheers.

The Eagles on Sept. 7 play North Dallas.
