A Caltech Sports Success

The California Institute of Technology (Caltech) is not known for its sports teams. There's a reason for that. Just as an example, Caltech's basketball team amassed a record 310 game conference losing streak.

I think Caltech is in the wrong conference. Their basketball team has beaten some other teams. (Their record is 5-20 overall this year.) They just haven't beaten anybody in their own conference since a one-point win over La Verne College in January of 1985.

Until now. On Tuesday a week ago, Caltech's team got another one-point win over the team from Occidental College to break that long conference losing streak.

Congratulations to Caltech. And congratulations to their basketball team.

(I wonder who has the longest conference losing streak now.)
