Indiana County Athletic Conferences

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

There were numerous conferences within the IHSAA that were made up of schools based entirely in one county. Many of these "County Conferences" also contained schools from neighboring counties that were either geographically closer or smaller than the other schools in their home county. These conferences would fold when schools would consolidate and seek out other, more expansive conferences that included similar-sized schools. The starting date of many of these conferences is hard to confirm, so the listing for many of these leagues uses the earliest date that can be confirmed.

Adams County Conference[edit]

This conference predates the end of World War II, and most of its members shared membership with the Eastern Indiana Conference (EIC). The last non-EIC member closed in 1956, and this county league folded the next year.

Bartholomew-Shelby County League[edit]

This league was a rare arrangement where all of the non-city schools from two counties played in the same conference. Bartholomew County had only two rural schools in the far north of the county (Clifford and Hope), and were able to participate with their peers within Shelby County.[1] Once Hauser left in 1961, the league became the Shelby County League for three season, until the three remaining schools rejoined thm in the Mid-Hoosier Conference.

Hamilton County Conference[edit]

Originally a 10-team conference located in Hamilton County (though Sheridan's attendance zone included a township in Boone County), consolidation and attendance disparities forced the remaining four schools to part ways. Noblesville became independent for some years, while the other three schools (including the newly formed Hamilton Heights, and Fishers, renamed as Hamilton Southeastern) left for the Mid-Capital.

  4. Jackson Central played in both the HCC and CDC 1961-65.

Howard County Conference[edit]

The Howard County Conference began in 1919[11], and was one of the first of the modern County Conferences to fold, as it was down to three schools by 1950 (Kokomo played in the North Central, and Taylor had not been created by that point). These schools joined with schools from Miami County to form the Howard-Miami Conference.

Marion County Athletic Association[edit]

The first attempt by the township schools in Marion County to organize competition, the league organized a basketball tournament in the winter of 1928, then organized a season schedule in the 1928-29 school year. The league broke up in 1945, as all but three schools had found other conferences to join. The schools would all later reunite (minus Southport) in the Central Suburban Conference in 1971, though this would only last a few years. Today the Township schools are either in Conference Indiana or the Metropolitan Interscholastic Conference.

Warren County Conference[edit]

A small, triangular conference (with only three schools in the county), the conference existed in two versions with the same schools (opting not to compete as all members were within the Midwest Conference 1934-47). While Seeger started as a renaming of West Lebanon in 1959 rather than a consolidation, it is given its own entry, since its nickname and colors were different as well.
