The longest winning streak and longest losing streak in the state ended Friday night.

Bryant’s 32-game winning streak came to an end in Longview, Texas, with a 24-21 loss to Longview, a traditional east Texas powerhouse.

Meanwhile, De Queen’s 28-game losing streak ended with a victory over Fouke.

I’m going to leave Bryant at No. 1 overall until it loses to an Arkansas team.

The No. 1 team in Class 4A, Shiloh Christian, lost. But that loss also was to an out-of-state power, this one from Sand Springs, Okla.

Let’s wait for a loss to an Arkansas team before dropping Shiloh out of the top spot in 4A.
