South Putnam participated in six of the eight fall sports, while North Putnam fielded a full team in five sports and Cloverdale competed in four sports with full teams.

Greencastle is first in the boys’ standings with 70 points, while Brown County is second at 50.

In girls’ sports, Edgewood ranks first witih 70 points. Greencastle is the top Putnam County school in fourth with 54.

Conference newcomer Indian Creek is eighth in the overall standings, tied for third in the boys’ standings and eighth in the girls’ rankings.

Teams in cross country and golf are awarded points based upon the final standings of the county meets.

The remaining sports are separated into divisions, and final standings are determined by “crossover” games matching teams against teams finishing in the same position in the opposing division.

Schools who do not field full teams receive a score of zero.

The five winter sports are boys’ basketball, girls’ basketball, wrestling, girls’ swimming and boys’ swimming.
