North Bend Central used three conference championships and two tournament titles on the girls side and a strong spring on the boys side to claim the 2006-2007 East Husker Conference all-sports championship.

The all-sports standings were compiled by the North Bend Eagle after awarding points based on how each school finished in the six girls sports and six boys sports.

Wisner-Pilger finished just three points behind NBC in the combined standings.

North Bend dominated the girls standings, claiming championships in volleyball, the volleyball tournament, basketball, the basketball tournament, track and field and finishing atop the unofficial softball standings.

On the boys side, a conference wrestling title and a first-place tie in basketball boosted Wisner-Pilger to the top of the heap by a comfortable margin.

The North Bend boys got runner-up finishes in track and golf, and finished in the top half of the basketball and wrestling standings and football ratings to slide into second place.

How it was scored

Points were awarded in each sport based on regular season standings and the number of teams that participated in the sport. So if all 10 teams competed in a sport, the conference champion received 10 points, second place nine points, third place got eight, and so on. If there were only seven teams in a sport, the winner got seven points, the runner-up six, and so on.

Basketball, volleyball: Regular season East Husker Conference standings were used.

Wrestling, cross country, golf, track and field: Points were awarded based on the school’s finish at the conference meet. In cross country and golf, partial teams were not counted.

Football: With the advent of district play and statewide scheduling several years ago, conference play in football went out the window. Points were awarded based upon the Eagle’s final East Husker Conference ratings. These ratings were compiled after considering each team’s record, head-to-head match ups against other EHC teams, common opponents, and strength of schedule.

The mythical conference championship was awarded to Oakland-Craig, who went 9-2 last season and advanced to the quarterfinals of the Class C-2 playoffs.

The Eagle’s EHC football ratings looked like this: 1. Oakland-Craig, 2. Scribner-Snyder, 3. Stanton, 4. North Bend, 5. Wisner-Pilger, 6. West Point-Beemer, 7. Lyons-Decatur, 8. Logan View, 9. Pender, 10. Tekamah-Herman.

Softball: With only four conference teams competing in softball, the East Husker does not officially recognise the sport or hold a conference championship. However, the four teams, North Bend-Scribner-Snyder, Tekamah-Herman, Logan View and Wisner-Pilger, all play each other, so the Eagle was able to compile regular season standings based on those games. Only single, regular season games were counted. As in other sports, tournament games or other multi-team formats were not included in the standings.

So the unofficial 2006 conference softball standings looked like this: 1. North Bend-Scribner-Snyder (3-0), 2. Tekamah-Herman (2-1), 3. Wisner-Pilger (1-2), 4. Logan View (0-3). North Bend and Scribner-Snyder, who co-op in softball, were awarded the same number of points.

Tournaments: Top-four finishes in the conference tournaments were also recognized. Teams were awarded four points for winning a conference tournament, three points for runner-up, two points for third and one point for fourth place. These bonus points were awarded for the conference volleyball and basketball tournaments and the conference wrestling dual tournament.
