KAUKAUNA — The Kaukauna Galloping Ghosts softball team continues chipping away at the record books.
Just this week, the defending state champion Ghosts notched its 71st win in a row, and Head Coach Tim Roehrig won his 500th career game.
Roehrig reached the plateau Wednesday with a 19-0 win over Appleton West.
He has led the team for 23 years, winning four state titles in that span.
And winning keeps happening for the Ghosts.
The softball team’s 10-0 win over Fond du Lac Thursday pushed their winning streak to 71, breaking the record for high school sports teams in Northeast Wisconsin.
The Kimberly football team had held the record at 70 wins until a loss to Fond du Lac in 2018 ended the streak. At the time, it was the longest winning streak in the nation.
The Ghosts softball team’s last loss was May 18, 2021.
Kaukauna has two more regular season games left — Friday and Saturday — before beginning WIAA regional play May 15 at home.
Kaukauna, the No. 1 seed, will face either #8 De Pere or #9 West De Pere in the Regional Final Thursday, May 25.
