This is a list of High School Athletic Conferences in Ohio.[1] Because the names of localities and their corresponding high schools do not always match and because there is often a possibility of ambiguity with respect to either the name of a locality or the name of a high school, the following table gives both in every case, with the locality name first, in plain type, and the high school name second in boldface type. The school's team nickname is given last.

Those three Cuyahoga County Conference schools also experienced greater enrollment increases than the smaller schools in their conference. They, too, had proximity to I-71 and the newly constructed I-271. Although Highand is listed it was never in the Chippewa Conference. It was in the Inland Conference (1958-1976) before joining the Suburban League in 1977. Many Chippewa Conference schools included Highland in their non-conference schedules among seveeral sports.

Cincinnati Public League/Interscholastic Athletic Association of Cincinnati[edit]

The Interscholastic Athletic Association was founded March 23, 1896, and continued for several years with both public and private high schools until 1931, when it rebranded itself as the Public High School League. Now encompassing solely the public high schools in Cincinnati, the league lasted until 1985, when reshuffling of city and suburban Cincinnati high schools took place, which led to the formation of the Cincinnati Hills League, Eastern Metro Conference, Metro County Conference, and Western Metro Conference.

  • Strongsville Mustangs (1964-1976)
  • Warrensville Heights Tigers (1964-1976)

The three larger schools in this conference (Brecksville, North Royalton and Strongsville) experienced greater enrollment increases, were closer to I-71 and I-271 and merged with Chippewa Conference schools sharing similar characteristics (Brunswick, Cloverleaf and Wadsworth) to comprise the charter members of the Pioneer Conference (launched in 1977). Warrensville Heights was also growing in enrollment and joined another Cleveland area league with schools closer in size. Smaller schools like Brooklyn, Cuyahoga Heights, Independence and Lutheran West later joined the Inland Conference. The three public schools were limited in potential enrollment increase because their city limits were no longer expandable. They were also near I-480, making travel among their new Inland Conference opponents easier, and their competition consisted of schools similar in enrollment. Richmond Heights had the same city limit growth issues and merged with east suburban schools early on.

Great Northern Conference[edit]

(c. 1945-1956)

The Great Northern Conference was created shortly after the end of World War II with the inaugural members of Clay, Maumee, Perrysburg, Rossford, Whitmer, and Sylvania. Anthony Wayne would join in 1953 after recently being consolidated. The GNC eventually added several members in 1956, splitting into a big schools division (Orange Division) and small schools division (Blue Division), both which would later split off into the Great Lakes League and Northern Lakes League, respectively.

Highland County League[edit]

The HCL was one of the local small-school county leagues in Southwest Ohio. The league had seven schools for most of its history, but consolidation chipped away at its membership total. League membership had been reduced to three by 1969,and these teams struggled on for a year until the creation of the Southern Hills Athletic League, which saw the three combine with the Adams and Brown county leagues, who had five teams apiece at that point.

Inland Conference[edit]


The Inland Conference formed in 1957 with 8 members. Brookside left in 1970 and was replaced by Lutheran West. Highland left in 1976 and was eventually replaced by Independence. Brooklyn and Cuyahoga Heights joined in 1979/1980 and the league was divided into an East Division (Brooklyn, Buckeye, Cuyahoga Heights, Independence, Lutheran West) and a West Division (Avon, Columbia, Firelands, Keystone, South Amherst). Season ending conference championship games in most sports were played between the winners of each division, to crown the overall conference champion. Avon, Firelands and Keystone left at the end of the 1985-86 school year and began play in the newly formed Lorain County Conference in the Fall of 1986. The remaining Inland Conference schools returned to the one division format, until the league dissolved at the end of the 1987-88 school year, which is when South Amherst was absorbed by Firelands. All remaining members, except Buckeye, joined the newly formed Metropolitan Athletic Conference in the Fall of 1988.

Pioneer Conference[edit]


This conference's growth was the result of major changes due such as population growth/shift, proximity to interstate corridors and the potential for greater natural border rivalries . The first was the mid/late 1970s where schools located south of the first ring suburbs near or through the I-71 corridor were realizing unprecedented growth. The conference's six charter members had outgrown their respective leagues. Berea and Midpark, both in the heart of the I-71 corridor, followed suit in 1979. During the 1980s Wadsworth, a member with strong athletic programs despite smaller enrollment, left for the Suburban League where opponents along the US-224 and I-76/I-94 corridors made better natural border rivalries. Cloverleaf followed suit in the late 1990s due to stagnation in its enrollment and its inability to maintain its programs at competitive levels in the PC. Conversely, Medina, also along the corridor, joined the PC in 1986 because of its unprecedented growth and the greater natural border rivalries among the league's charter members. The final shift was the early 2000s where first-ring south/west Cleveland suburbs found the charter PC members were now larger, more suitable opponents and closer in proximity; saving some travel among Lake Erie League opponents of years past. Lorain County schools, Elyria and North Ridgeville, were looking for closer, competitive opponents as an alternative to the continued shrinking of Lorain City and Sandusky schools. Their proximity to I-80 and I-480 made the jump to the PC more viable. This conference was a powerhouse in all sports and it was also the foundation of the Cleveland area's first suburban mega-conference, the NEO Conference, whose format was patterned after similar mega-conferences formed in Columbus, Dayton and Cincinnati suburbs.

Wood County "B" League[edit]

The smaller schools in Wood County started to organize into leagues in the early 1930s, originally competing in three separate leagues: the Northern Wood County League, Southeast Wood County League, and Western Wood County League. By 1959, consolidation and schools leaving for other leagues had whittled the three leagues down to two, with the Northern and Southeast leagues combining into the Eastern Wood County League. This would only last for one year, as further consolidation caused a merger into a single league. The league ended in 1963, as the number of schools was whittled to three.
