Western Buckeye League History

THE HISTORY OF...

The Western Buckeye League Championship

In the year 1969 the Western Buckeye League held its first League Meet. The meet was for boys only and was called the W.B.L. Invitational. It was not a W.B.L. Championship Competition. Beginning in 1970 the League began hosting an Official W.B.L. Championship Meet, again for boys only. In 1983 the league added a girls race, although it was not Championship Competition. The first Official W.B.L. Championship Meet for the ladies was held in 1985. From 1970 to 1975 the W.B.L. Champion was determined solely by the Championship Meet. From 1976 to 1988 the League combined a Dual Meet record with the Championship Meet results to come up with the league champ, thus Co-Champs a couple of times. In 1989 the league went back to the Championship Meet for determining the W.B.L. Champion, which is the present format. Defiance leads the league in boys' championships with 19 solo titles and 1 co-title. Van Wert has the most girls' titles with 9 W.B.L. Cross-Country Champions!
