Season Notes
This marks the first official season of the Iowa High School Hockey League. Play begins in the fall of 1976 with two divisions. The two Waterloo teams combine with teams from the Des Moines Metro League and Sioux City to form Division I. Ames, Ankeny, Mason City and Des Moines Lincoln make up Division II.
From the first season through the 1988-1989 season the League utilized playing rules established by the National Federation of State High School Associations. The League began its affiliation with USA Hockey during the 1989-1990 season.
NOTE: In the fall of 1975 the Waterloo Community School District sponsored the first and only public high school hockey team in Iowa - the Waterloo Warriors. Because hockey was not sanctioned by the Iowa High School Boys Athletic Association, it was permissable to organize one team to represent Waterloo Central, East and West High Schools. The Waterloo Columbus Catholic Sailors also began a school-sponsored hockey team the same year.
Waterloo Columbus swept the first ever regular-season title with a 10-2-0 record and the first official IHSHL State Tournament held at Hilton Coliseum in Ames.
NOTE: An invitational Iowa High School State Championship Tournament was held at Hilton Coliseum in Ames, February 21-22, 1975. Waterloo Columbus edged Sioux City 5-4 in the championship game.
