In between there were more than 90 wins in a four-year span, including 57 consecutive regular season wins — one of the longest streaks in the history of Ohio high school basketball. The Norwalk High School boys basketball team’s path to a Division II state championship in the 2013-14 season also helped lift a city devastated by job loss, a school financial crisis and the worst winter in 90 years. Join sports journalist Mark Hazelwood in reliving one of the more memorable and improbable high school state championships in the region’s history.
