WNCHSAA Football State Championship Results 1930-1976

The Western North Carolina High School Activities Association was founded on December 10, 1929.  Charter members included Belmont, Concord, Kings Mountain, Lexington, Lincolnton, Monroe, Newton, Mooresville, Black Mountain, Cliffside, Hickory, Lenoir, Marion, Morganton, and Rutherford-Spindale. 
 
The WNCHSAA grew to 42-members in four conferences before it was dissolved in June of 1977 and its members joined the NCHSAA. 
 
Only three of the 42 members failed to win a Western title in some sport during the WNCHSAA's existence and it had some outstanding football programs in it.  W.C. Clary served for many years as executive director of the organization. 
 
From 1950-1953, the WNCHSAA had two conferences, South Piedmont and Western.  Round robin league schedules were not played; therefore, numerous times two teams would finish tied for the league crown.  Occasionally, a playoff was held for a particular conference, but an overall WNCHSAA title game was rarely played.
