Sitting at 65 straight wins, only Algonquin – 67 straight from Nov. 5, 2011, to Jan. 15, 2015 – has put together a longer win streak in OCAA history than Humber.

The Hawks have won three-straight OCAA titles from 2014-17, one away from joining Algonquin, who won four-straight from 2011-15.

At the Helm
Ajay Sharma returns to the sidelines for his seventh season and is 10 wins from tying Humber Hall of Famer Jim Henderson (1991 – 2000) as the all-time winningest head coach in program history.

Sharma has directed the Hawks to a period of unprecedented prosperity in the form of three consecutive CCAA tournament appearances – including the first national championship in program history – and three straight provincial titles.  Sharma owns a 123-22 (.848) career record.
