Oct. 13, 2017 — Friday Statwatch for games played through Oct. 11

Welcome back to Friday Statwatch, our weekly ramble into the numbers that connect the past and the present, the East and the West, public and private.

This week we bore witness to a team working on a significant statistical milestone, one which has been a bit buried in our coverage, but we’ll bring it up now. Last Saturday, when Shrub Oak Lakeland (N.Y.) beat Mamaroneck (N.Y.) 4-2, it was the 108th consecutive game without loss for the Hornets.

Time was, the 106-game winning streak that the legendary Dorotha Edwards spun Oklahoma City Casady School (Okla.) from 1956 to 1969 was seen as well nigh untouchable. It was an era of 25-minute halves, grass pitches, leather balls, and long-toed sticks.

But when Lakeland beat Brewster (N.Y.) on Oct. 4th, it was the fourth time a team had strung together as many as 107 games without defeat, exceeding Casady’s old record. Voorhees Eastern (N.J.) has done it twice, and Watertown (Mass.) did it on its way to the current high-water mark for games without loss, 184.

It goes to show just how well that Lakeland, Eastern, and Watertown have been playing, and to be able to put out a consistent product game by game, year by year.

Below is our compilation of field hockey statistics from available sources. This includes the easy-to-use MaxPreps.com tool, and I encourage readers to contact their coaches, athletic directors, and student managers so that they may register for and use the MaxPreps.com platform, and we encourage you to get your fellow teams as well as perhaps your conference, league, or your state governing body to enter field hockey information there, so that we can aim for as complete a statistical picture of the country as possible.

So, here’s our imperfect list, thanks to, amongst others, MaxPreps, Advance Media, PennLive.com, LancSports.com, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, PhilaFieldHockey.com, and the Washington Post:
