Our Town Seward: Seward Girls Dominate Hoops

The girls basketball team at Seward High School has been on a roll of historical proportions.

For sports fans, it's pretty difficult to wrap your head around this one. Tom Tvrdy's team's have won a mind-warping 101 basketball games in a row and this past spring they wrapped up their 4th consecutive state championship.

Beth Bohuslavsky still has a hard time believing that she was a big part of 4 straight state championships, "Did it really come true? But it's just awesome to see all those trophies behind you that we accomplished that much in four years and hopefully they can keep it goin' next year."

And the leaders on next years team will be a fab four led by Hannah Tvrdy, "I mean it's been amazing. I never thought growing up that in high school we would go undefeated this and it's just been great to be a part and our teammates are just awesome to play with."

The architect of these tremendous teams has been Tom Tvrdy and he says it all starts with talented players, "Then you have to have talent that's willing to work really hard at developing that talent to be the best it can be and then you have to have great assistant coaches and I've got the finest that anyone could hope for."

Beth was a member of a senior class that didn't lose single basketball game in all four years of high school, "It's pretty awesome to be part of that cause not many people can say they've done that before."

It's also no secret that the entire town of Seward has taken pride in this teams success. Beth says, "It's awesome to be a part of, it's fun to be a part of, but none of this would've happened without the support of the community. I mean at every game someone was there at least and we've always had a packed gym and it was always filled with the community members so we can't thank them enough for just how much support they've given us throughout the last 4 years."

11 more wins will push them past the West Point Central Catholic girls 110 straight.

And then there's Nebraska's all-time top winning streak. The Wahoo boys won 114 in a row in the early 90's.

Right now for the Bluejays, it's 101...and counting.
