Welcome to the official website of the Fox Valley Association. With 10 schools totaling an enrollment of over 15,000 students, the conference spans the length of Lake Winnebago from Kaukauna to Fond du Lac. The Fox Valley Association is one of the oldest athletic conferences in Wisconsin with seven of its eight original members still intact from its founding in 1970.
Fox Valley Association schools are members of the Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association (WIAA) and the conference sponsors 20 championship sports.
FVA Wins Seven 2015-16 WIAA State Championships
FVA member schools captured seven state team championships during 2015-16, bringing the all-time total to 97 state titles in 18 different sports since the conference began. The conference has won at least one state title in 41 of its 46 seasons.
Kaukauna won its first state boys basketball championship by routing Waunakee 91-62 in the Division 2 title game on March 19 in Madison. The win came in the Ghosts' third trip to state and was the third title won by a Kaukauna boys sport this year, having already won championships in volleyball and wrestling.
Kaukauna's 91 points matched the Division 2 record for points in a championship game. The Ghosts went 26-2 for the season and won the outright FVA championship earlier in the season.
Kimberly rallied from a 21-point deficit late in the third quarter and used a record-setting offensive performance to outscore Arrowhead 49-42 for its third consecutive WIAA state football title on Nov. 20 in Madison. The Papermakers rolled up 582 total yards and scored the winning touchdown with 11 seconds left. It was the Papermakers' 42nd consecutive victory as they capped their third straight undefeated season and beat Arrowhead in the Division 1 title game for the second straight year. The title was Kimberly's second this fall (along with boys cross country) and the school's 24th all-time. It was Kimberly's fifth football state title in the past nine years.
Kaukauna captured its WIAA-leading ninth state boys volleyball championship with a four-set win over Kettle Moraine on Nov. 14 in Milwaukee. The Galloping Ghosts last won the title in 1982, the final year before the tournament was discontinued until 2000. It was Kaukauna's 15th state championship in any sport and its fifth since 2010. The title is the third won by an FVA member school already this fall.
Kimberly totaled 80 points, outscoring runner-up Madison LaFollette by 19 points for the school's first WIAA state boys cross country championship on Oct. 31 in Wisconsin Rapids. The Papermakers put five runners among the top 50 finishers with Nicholas Rink placing third overall in 15:57. Derek Rink was 13th, Isaac Benz placed 29th, Rowen Ellenberg was 31st and Jack Fitzgerald was 44th overall.
Kimberly is only the fourth team from an FVA school to win a boys cross country state title and the first since Neenah captured the 2001 crown. Neenah also won in 1963 (prior to the FVA's inception) and Appleton East won in 1972. It was Kimberly's 23rd state title in any sport and the eighth different sport to win a title.
Neenah became the first Fox Valley Association school to capture a WIAA state girls tennis title with a 4-3 win over Brookfield East on Oct. 24 in Madison. The Rockets finished the season with an 18-1 record in dual meets and also won the FVA championship earlier this season. It was Neenah's first state title in any sport since a boys soccer title in 2007. The title was Neenah's conference-leading 31st overall and the 13th different sport to win a state championship.
