    Short String Of Victories

    I have often seen these phrases used:

    1. "a long string of victories"
    2. "a long win streak"

    Could I then write these as good English:

    3. "a short string of victories"
    4. "a short win streak"

    Normally, I would say "winning streak".

    So, this:

    "a short winning streak"

    would be normal English?
