One streak continued while another ended. In between 21 Weston High letter winners received their jackets making the night a complete success. The streak that continued thanks to the 56 -33 victory over Family Community Christian (FCCS) out of Winnsboro is the number of victories that has now reached what is believed to be an all-time school record of nine straight to open a season The one that ended due to the 69-55 victory over FCCS put an end to the four straight losses that the Wolves have endured to open the year.
