Q: What's the story with the Tri-Valley Conference and the divisions, etc?
A: The TVC formed in 1970, Trimble "officially" entered the league in 1977, but we didn't have all of the league teams on our schedule, so our first season participating in league play was 1978. The 1992 season was the last year of the "combined" TVC. The season of 1993 featured the Ohio Division (Meigs, Wellston, Nelsonville-York, Belpre, Vinton County) and the Hocking Division (Trimble, Alexander, Federal Hocking, Miller, Southern, Eastern). In 1997 Alexander moved to the Ohio Division and Waterford entered the Hocking Division. In 2008 Athens joined the TVC-Ohio. In 2010 Belpre will transfer to, and South Gallia will join the Hocking Division
