The locations of member schools of the Firelands Conference.

The Firelands Conference is an Ohio High School Athletic Association (OHSAA) athletic league located in north-central Ohio. The league was formed in the 1960–61 school year and is named for the Firelands area of the old Western Reserve, where most of the member schools reside.[1] High schools in this conference are located in Ashland, Huron, and Richland counties. Some of the schools' district boundaries extend into the neighboring counties of Crawford, Erie, and Lorain. Most of the founding schools came from the defunct Huron-Erie League.

  • 1963: Perkins withdrew after the 1962-63 winter sports season. Hayesville, Jeromesville, and Mapleton join the league in the spring of 1963. Hillsdale becomes a member for the 1963-64 school year when Hayesville and Jeromesville consolidate.
  • 1964: Black River joins.
  • 1965: Berlin Heights and Milan join their districts into the Berlin-Milan School District, but continue to compete separately.
  • 1968: Berlin Heights and Milan consolidate to form Edison, which remains in the conference.
  • 1968: St. Paul joins the conference.

1970s[edit]

1980s[edit]

  • 1982: Crestview and Plymouth both join after leaving the Black Fork Valley Conference. Both had also previously been in the Johnny Appleseed Conference until 1978. The league would split into two divisions: North (Edison, Monroeville, New London, St. Paul, Western Reserve) and South (Black River, Crestview, Mapleton, Plymouth, South Central).
