Three Rivers Athletic Conference (Indiana)

Last updated

The Three Rivers Athletic Conference was a short-lived conference based in Southern Indiana, not to be confused with the Three Rivers Conference in northern Indiana, which still exists. [1] [2] The five schools that made the conference were very small, far-flung schools that were unable to find a home in closer leagues for various reasons. The league folded in 1989 due to travel concerns, with all the members becoming independent. New Harmony closed in 2012, while Cannelton and Medora joined the Southern Roads Conference in 2018, while Christian Academy of Indiana (formerly Graceland Christian) and Evansville Day remain independent.

The Three Rivers Conference is a high school athletic conference in northeast Indiana, consisting of schools in Fulton, Kosciusko, Miami, Wabash, and Whitley counties.

Southern Roads Conference

The Southern Roads Conference is an Indiana-based conference containing IHSAA and non-IHSAA public, charter, and religious schools. This league was founded in 2018, as longtime independents Cannelton and Medora wanted to form a conference that would include the isolated small schools.

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.

The River Cities Cup, also known as the Dirty River Derby, is a rivalry between American soccer clubs representing Cincinnati, Ohio and Louisville, Kentucky. From 2016 to 2018, the cities were respectively represented in the second-tier league now known as the USL Championship by FC Cincinnati and Louisville City FC. Both teams played in the Eastern Conference of what was then known as the United Soccer League, and the River Cities Cup was contested solely in regular-season matches between the two sides, with the winner of the regular-season series claiming the cup. After the 2018 season, FC Cincinnati ceased USL operations, with the ownership group having been awarded a Major League Soccer franchise that began play under the FC Cincinnati name in 2019. From that point forward, the rivalry only takes place if the two teams are drawn together in the U.S. Open Cup, with the first such meeting after FC Cincinnati's arrival in MLS taking place in 2019.
