2017-18 promises to be an exciting year for the Eastern Cincinnati Conference!  

The Eastern Cincinnati Conference welcomes West Clermont Schools to the Conference.  The West Clermont District is a result of the consolidation of Glen Este and Amelia High Schools.  Read more HERE.  The Conference also welcomes three new athletic directors, James Collins from West Clermont, Jonas Smith from Withrow, and Steve Ellison from Walnut Hills; as well as new Principals at Anderson (Rob Fellows), Walnut Hills (John Chambers), West Clermont (Randy Gebhardt), and Withrow (John Corey).  

This will be the sixth year for the ECC website.  The website nearly reached the four million mark in "hits' on the site this past year.  Check the site daily for updated stories and statistics for your school's athletes and teams.  One of the features that I am especially proud of is the weekly salute to our Athletes of the Week.  Last year, we recognized just under 700 athletes!  

In addition to the website, stay up-to-date on ECC athletic news by visiting Facebook and Twitter.   Also, check out a large number of sports stories each month by clicking on the "In The News" link above.  Often times, these are more "school specific" stories from other media outlets and school websites.

Best of luck to all of our fine athletes, coaches, athletic directors, administrators, and parents this year!  You are what make the Eastern Cincinnati Conference the great conference that it truly is!
