Best 5 Year Runs in Portsmouth History

The Portsmouth Trojans have had some remarkable 5 year runs of outstanding basketball. Currently, under Coach Eugene Collins, the Trojans have compiled a very good 94-33 record from 2011-2015. That ranks as the 4th best 5 year run in PHS history. Here are the top five 5 year periods of Trojan basketball in terms of winning pct.:

1. 1987-1991.........116-14 (22-3, 27-1, 21-4, 24-3, 22-3)
2. 1979-1983.........102-19 (21-1, 21-6, 20-4, 20-4, 20-4)
3. 1927-1931.........83-17 (14-4, 14-3, 18-5, 17-3, 20-2)
4. 2011-2015.........94-33 (21-5, 24-3, 10-13, 19-5, 20-7)
5. 1951-1955.........81-32 (18-4, 14-8, 15-6, 14-10, 20-4)

The only losing season of those 5 periods is the 2012-2013 season, in which the Trojans went 10-13. Still, the 5 year period from 2011-2015 saw 2 Final 4 teams and an Elite 8 runnerup. The only 5 year period listed above that did not produce a state tournament team was 1951-1955. Portsmouth did win the district in 4 of those years and finished regional runnerup in 1954 and 1955.
