One of the things that makes the Eastern Cincinnati Conference special is the member schools' ability to come together as one and support one another - whether it be in times of sorrow, triumph, or sportsmanship and leadership.  This was best exemplified April 12 when the conference held its inaugural ECC Leadership Summit at Kings High School.  The event featured a number of team-building activities.  Guest speakers included UC Athletic Director Mike Bohn, NFL Hall of Famer Anthony Munoz, OHSFCA Hall of Famer Vince Soriano, and Kings football coaches Alex Garvin and Ron Corradini.
