A baseball player has set a new Minnesota high school state record for longest hitting streak. 

Owen Boerema, a senior from Litchfield High School in Meeker County, extended his hitting streak to 34 games with a pair of hits in the Dragons' 10-2 win over Kimball on Friday. 

Boerema, who started his streak as a junior last season, broke the state record of 33 consecutive games with a hit that was set from 1981-83 by Deer River's Tim Gullickson. 

According to MNBaseballHub, Boerema started the season with 12 hits in his first 13 at-bats. His stats haven't been updated since the first three games of the season, but it's probably fair to assume that he's doing quite well. 

Even better is that he said "Yee-haw" in a tweet

Fun fact: Joe Mauer holds the state record for highest career batting average (minimum of 75 at-bats) at .574, doing so with Cretin-Derham Hall from 1999-2001.
