The nine longest playoff streaks in the state continued this season, with Davis extending its streak of playoff appearances to 29.

The Wolves haven't missed the postseason since 1983.


Seminole extended its streak to 28, while Cascia Hall has made the playoffs 26 consecutive seasons and Jenks has made 24.

The longest streak snapped this year was Glenpool, which had made the playoffs 15 consecutive seasons before its 3-7 record this year left it out of the playoffs.

Bixby and Shattuck had 12-year streaks snapped.

On the other side, several schools broke long playoff droughts, Caney Valley is making its first appearance since 1982, the second-longest drought in the state among teams that have playoff appearances in their history. Northwest has the longest playoff drought, dating back to 1968.

Tulsa Memorial (1989) and Merritt (1993) also snapped 15-plus year playoff droughts.
