And another thing. What got me to thinking on this was an article in the Waco paper today about Calvert winning its 17th straight district championship.

Several years ago, the same paper had a story on Snook winning several in a row--around 15 I think but not at all sure. I don't know how many it ended up with.

I wonder if our 19 straight is a state record? Anyone have any information on this?

Dan Jensen

The recent Houston Chronicle story credited us with eight district championships in school history. Actually, that was the total for Buddy Carlisle as coach.

Add the 19 straight that we all know about and the district championships for the school since the consolidation are 27 in a 58 year period.

I have recently been talking to some coaches from schools that may have won as many consecutive district championships as our 19.

Calvert and Snook each won 17 straight but the Snook coach said Moulton may have won more than us.

I phoned the coach, Sammy Koudelda, and he told me he had retired just the day before with over 1100 career wins and with a current string of 28 straight playoff appearances.

Of course, the only thing that counts are first place finishes and that can be hard to track with the current four playoff teams from each district situation.

I asked him if Moulton had finished first every year and he responded, "We may have, I'm not sure." Plumb aggravating and frustrating.

I am going to claim the state record for old Clear Creek and let someone challenge us. They better be able to prove their claim.

Dan Jensen

Buddy Carlisle has contacted R. V. Baugus, editor of TexPreps magazine, about the subject and here is his response: "I believe it is fair to say that assumption of 19 consecutive titles is correct. I believe we had Fort Worth Dunbar with a nice streak as well, to my knowledge, but it did not at all hit at 19 in a row.

A Class A team or two might be under my radar, but again there is no way any of those outfits approached 19 consecutive either. Sorry this is not more scientific, but this is a remarkable feat that few have approached and CC should be safe in assuming that number stands at the top of the Texas heap."

But, I don't want to assume, I want to know. Baugus didn't know that Snook and Calvert had come close to our streak and he doesn't know about Moulton.

Unfortunately, I don't know about Moulton either. I want to clarify that coach's response to me. I asked if, in those 28 years, Moulton had finished first for as many as 19 straight and his reponse was that they might have, he wasn't sure.

I'm not sure either but I will claim the record until someone can be sure we don't.

Coach Carlisle at Southwest Texas

  • Coach and Basketball - Senior Year
    The photos in this album are taken from the yearbook, entitled The Pedagog, from Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos for the 1948/49 school year. Coach Carlisle was a senior that year. The photos tell a story of a very accomplished and talented athlete but also a person who had many other outstanding attributes as well. Thanks for Peggy Carlisle for supplying the yearbook from which these photos were taken.
