East Central Conference (IHSAA)

The East Central Conference was an athletic conference from 1947 to 1969 based in Eastern Indiana. At one point, the conference had 14 schools. The conference, like many other "superconferences" from this time period, can be considered forerunners for multiple conferences: the Big Blue River, Eastern Indiana, and Tri-Eastern were all started in part by former members of the ECC. The formation of the TEC in 1962 almost caused the ECC to fold, as it was left with five members. However, the Hancock County Conference's five schools were merged into the fold, giving the conference new life. Consolidation was eventually the ECC's undoing, as the loop was left with five teams by 1969, all of whom started the BBRC.
