BOYS' BASKETBALL:  Kings will be gunning for its fourth consecutive ECC championship in boys' basketball.  The Knights finished just one game ahead of Walnut Hills last winter.  This winter, Walnut Hills has a 7-1 ECC mark and sits two games ahead of Kings (through January 22).

GIRLS' BASKETBALL:  Glen Este hopes to have the same success this winter that the Lady Trojans experienced in 2015-2016.  The squad won the ECC title with a perfect 14-0 record on its way to a 21-2 overall record.  This season, Kings (8-2) and Walnut Hills (7-2) each have two Conference losses (through January 22).  Turpin sits at 7-3 in Conference play.

WRESTLING:  Glen Este has its sights set on the team's fourth ECC title in the last five years.  The Conference Championships are scheduled for February 11 at Loveland HS.

ACADEMIC QUIZ TEAM:  Walnut Hills hopes to make it five consecutive ECC titles this winter in Academic Quiz Team competition.  The Conference tournament is scheduled for February 22 at Turpin HS.

BOYS' BOWLING:  The Redskins of Anderson are looking for a three-peat this winter on the lanes.  Kings and Glen Este are both 7-1 in Conference matches to begin the 2016-17 season (through January 15).  Milford was the highest finishing ECC team at the January 7 ECC-SWOC Showdown at Northwest Lanes, finishing third overall.  Anderson's Noah Dolezal and Josh Cooper earned All-Tournament honors.

GIRLS' BOWLING:  Glen Este has won each of the ECC's four girls' bowling titles, and the Lady Trojans hope 2016-2017 is no different.  Milford and Glen Este split their two meetings this winter, and both sit at 7-1 in ECC play to begin the 2016-17 season (through January 15).  The Lady Trojans captured the ECC-SWOC Showdown title, and came away with four of the five spots on the All-Tournament team (Courtney Chaffin, Danielle Cooper, Rebecca Rainwater, and Taylor Neal.  Milford's Jessica Haines captured the fifth spot by finishing fourth).

GYMNASTICS:  Due to the limited number of schools participating, the ECC doesn't officially sponsor gymnastics.  The ECC, however, fared extremely well in the City Championships and postseason competition last winter.

CHEER AND DANCE:  At the January 14 Cheer and Dance Competition held at Walnut Hills, Milford came away with the Cheer title, while Kings won the Dance championship.  This was Milford's second straight win and Kings' third consecutive title!
