The Wabash Conference in Indiana

The Wabash River Conference is a nine-member Indiana High School Athletic Association (IHSAA)-sanctioned conference located within Fountain, Parke, Vermillion, and Warren Counties in West Central Indiana. All of the participating schools are either 1A or small 2A institutions in rural counties. The conference began in 1964 with nine schools who had outgrown their county conferences or had them fold, and has had that number stay relatively consistent since.[1] The conference returned to nine in 2016 as South Vermilion joined from the second incarnation of the Western Indiana Conference.
