Answer 58: Clinch Distinction?

November 27, 2004

What unique distinction does Clinch County hold in Red Devil history?

ANSWER: Clinch County wins over our Red Devils bookended Lincoln County's then-state-record 44-game winning streak. In 1988, Clinch won 21-7 in the quarterfinals. The Devils did not lose again until the 1991 state title game, 11-8 in a heartbreaker to Clinch. Had it not been for those two losses, Lincoln County very well could have won SEVEN straight state titles from 1985 through 1991.
