The 2016-17 Arizona high school athletic year provided some incredible individual feats and amazing team accomplishments.

It has also provided the continuation of a couple of dynasties.

The Phoenix Brophy Prep boys swimming has now won 29 straight state championships.


Not too far behind is Keams Canyon Hopi High, which has now won 27 consecutive state championships in boys cross country.

Both of those streaks are very impressive.

In fact, they are the two longest streaks of consecutive state championships in Arizona history.

Xavier Prep has four entries on this list. Talk about a dominant athletic program.

The golf team once won 16 straight state titles and then pulled off 12 consecutive championships.

Xavier Prep’s swimming team once won 13 straight state titles and at another time took home 10 straight titles.

We think it’s safe to say that they have dynasties in those sports.

Same goes for all the other teams on this list, especially those two active streaks at the top.

When will Brophy and Hopi’s respective runs of consecutive state titles end?
