CHOTEAU, Mont. (AP) A Montana girls' basketball team lost on Thursday night for the first time since the 2010 state championship game, snapping the nation's longest winning streak at 120 games.
Class B rival Choteau defeated Fairfield 50-38 after rallying from a seven-point second-half deficit to end the longest streak in Montana high school history.
It was the sixth longest girls' basketball winning streak in the history of National Federation of State High School Associations - the longest since Duncanville, Texas won 134 games from 1987-91.
Only two prep boys' basketball streaks were longer: Passaic, N.J. (159) and Valdosta Georgia Christian (129).
Baskin, La. holds the top spot overall with 218 consecutive games from 1947-53.
Fairfield (16-1) has won four straight state championships since its last loss- and six of the last seven titles.
Jill Barta, a freshman on Gonzaga's women's basketball team, was one of four seniors on the 2014 Fairfield team which never lost a game, winning 104.
