I Couldn't Even Go 129-0 On A Video Game

For those of you who occasionally forget that North Dakota exists, there was some fun news out of the state today: high school senior Liza Wischer finished her career by winning a record sixth singles championship in girls tennis. Yeah, that's right, six - not only did she toast the competition for four straight years in high school, she got an early start with wins in seventh and eighth grades.

More impressively (if that's possible), that final victory gave her a 129-0 career singles record. I don't care who you are, where you're from, or what sport you play - going undefeated for an entire career, especially when two of those years were against competitors at up to six years older than you, is an unbelievable feat.

You'd think that Wischer might be planning to turn pro now, maybe win a few tournaments and cash in on what appears to be exceptional talent, but you'd think wrong. The next stop for Wischer is Iowa State, which could use the help after losing eleven of its last twelve matches in 2006-07.

Excellent call.
Before Thomas Jones began his career at UVA, some people were questioning his pedigree, since he had played at a small high school(Powell Valley) in SW Virginia. Well, TJ managed to gain over 6000 yards in his high school career. I think he proved he was good enough to play big time football.

Is it better than Edwin Moses' 122 straight wins on the track...?

Nope. Unbeaten for over nine years.

Yea, after this I dunno how crazy of a feat this is in the midwest. Cameron Hubbs jsut finished something like a 102-0 record at my high school (Omaha Westside) and she's on scholarship for Wisconsin next semester. Then again, I guess she didn't do the whole middle school thing.
