The Streak by Jim Enright

Paul VI High School dominated boys' scholastic cross-country in South Jersey over a span of 20 years. From 1980 through 1999, Paul VI was voted the number one boys' cross-country team in South Jersey an unprecedented 15 times, including 11 straight seasons encompassing the years 1980 through 1990.

Paul VI won 7 New Jersey State Championships in boys' cross-country over a 12-year period, within the toughest division in New Jersey-Parochial-A. The Paul VI Eagles also became the number one team in all of New Jersey 4 times by winning the prestigious Meet of Champions, the most titles won by any South Jersey high school.

Jason DiJoseph, a 1989 Paul VI graduate and 3-time State Champion in cross-country, was named the Runner-of-the-Century by the Courier-Post newspaper in 1999. DiJoseph's coach, Mike Glavin, was voted the Coach-of-the-Century.

From 1980 through 2006, Paul VI High School won 240 consecutive dual meets in boys' cross-country. This streak is the fourth longest high school winning streak in cross-country history.

Jim Enright had the pleasure of coaching the Paul VI boys' cross-country team from 2003 through 2006.

Although THE STREAK is of course quite different from the author¿s first book FLAGSTAFF HILL which was fictional, I found it thoroughly enjoyable. The detailed accounts of the dual meets against Bishop Eustace during the author¿s coaching tenure were so vivid that I felt I was actually at the meets. The book definitely inspired me during my next run and I know that the book will be appealing for all runners of any age.
