The Montpelier Board of Education and the NWOAL Principals Membership Announcement:
Montpelier will be joining the TAAC for football, the BBC for other sports, and remain in the NWOAL for wrestling. Montpelier will remain in NWOAL football in 2014 and the other sports through the 2015-16 school year (will continue in NWOAL wrestling). Montpelier has been a charter member of the NWOAL since 1926. Montpelier also was a founding member of the Buckeye Border Conference (BBC) in 1967.
The NWOAL is commonly known as the oldest league in the state of Ohio. We have hosted competitions in football, boys basketball and track and field since the 1926-27 school year.
This site is intended to serve our member schools and communities as a source of information for our student athletes. Initially, we will provide school websites, atheltic websites and schedules, league schedules and standings, and recognition of our accomplishments. We will provide links that are commonly used for NWOAL recognition. It is our goal to provide a history of league records from 1926.
