No. 1 Akron Archbishop Hoban won its fourth straight state title Thursday night against Massillon Washington, 42-28.

Hoban joins Newark Catholic (1984-87), Cleveland St. Ignatius (1991-95), Maria Stein Marion Local (2011-14) and Coldwater (2012-15) as the only schools to win four consecutive state titles.

“It’s an amazing thing isn’t it,” Coach Tim Tyrell told the Akron Beacon Journal. “I can’t say enough about them. They’ve done everything they can possibly do. These kids won every single championship every single year. I’m just truly blessed.”
