INDIANOLA, Iowa - Martensdale-St Marys High, a small school from rural Iowa, has broken the national high school record by winning its 84th straight game.
The Blue Devils (41-0) beat Twin Cedars-Bussey High 10-0 in six innings in the Iowa substate finals Tuesday night, snapping the mark set by Portsmouth, N.H. earlier this season.
Portsmouth's streak remains at 83 after the Clippers won their state title in the spring. Iowa teams play ball in the summer, allowing the Blue Devils to overtake them.
The win also clinched a trip to next week's state tournament for the Blue Devils, who play in Iowa's smallest classification.
Martensdale-St. Marys finished 43-0 and won the state crown a year ago.
