Waterloo East 2, Iowa City High 1.
That’s the count of Mississippi Valley Conference divisional championships won by each school through the 2007-08 school year.
Nobody is confusing East (a perennial cellar-dweller in just about every sport not called boys’ basketball) with mighty City High. But the count is correct.
East won Valley Division titles in wrestling and volleyball. City’s lone Mississippi Division title came in boys’ basketball. Not even the Little Hawks’ state-championship girls’ basketball team won a divisional title.
In City High’s defense, the Mississippi Division is the stronger division in most sports. Iowa City West and Cedar Falls are strong across the board.
While we’re on the subject, how much stock is taken in MVC all-sports standings? Lots? None? Probably more at Iowa City West and Cedar Rapids Kennedy, which lead the standings in both boys’ and girls’ sports.
