History of Bluejacket Football

On October 22, 1910, the first Cambridge - Isanti High School team went into action against Sandstone, winning 17 to 0.  Thus began the long and colorful tradition of Cambridge - Isanti High School football.  CIHS has fielded a team every year since 1910 with the exception of 1914 (no schools showed up for their scheduled games), and 1924 (the equipment was lost).

Notes about several exceptional Bluejacket squads:  The 1913 and 1919 teams were not scored on, and the 1929 team had only a safety scored against them.  The following teams were undefeated:  1913, 1917, 1918, 1919, 1920, 1027, 1929, 1938, 1943, 1944, 1952, 1961, 1964, 1970, 1971, 1976 and 1987.  The 1979, 1991, 1992, 1997 and 2005 teams reached state but lost in the quarterfinals of the State playoffs.  The 1983 team lost in the State A semifinals to Hutchinson 27 - 14; the 1977 team lost in the State AA semifinals to Stillwater 7 - 0; and the 1995 team lost in the State AA semifinals to Rochester Mayo 29 - 14.  The 1980 team lost in the State AA finals to Burnsville 23 - 6.  The 1999 team lost to Mankato West in the State 4A finals 35 - 28.

Back-to-back State A Championships were won by the Bluejackets in 1986 (24 - 0 over Stewartville) and 1987 (28 - 14 over Lakeville).  The Class AAAA State Championship was won in 2000 (24 - 14 over St. Thomas Academy).

The overall record of Cambridge - Isanti High School in 106 seasons 605 wins, 235 losses and 29 ties.
