     The Bird Island Panthers won more 212 Conference wrestling titles than other school in conference history with ten championships.  They won five conference wrestling tournament titles and five dual meet championships during the first fifteen years of wrestling in the conference.  The Panthers won their first title in 1968 and then claimed ten of the fourteen championships.

     The Buffalo Lake Bison dominated the conference in the early years of 212 Conference Wrestling.  The Bison were the first team in the league to start a wrestling program in 1956.  They won the conference tournament for the first five years of tournament competition.  In 1966 212 Conference officials decided to have a dual meet competition to supplement the year end wrestling tournament. BLHS won the dual meet schedule for the first two years.  They won the tournament for seven titles and two dual meet championships for a total of nine championships.

     The Brownton Bears won one tournament championship in 1971 and two dual meet championships in 1970 and 1971.  The Hector Bulldogs won one dual meet championship in 1965 and the Renville Indians claimed one tournament championship in 1973.
