The league recognition has been annually awarded since the conference was founded beginning with the 1966-67 school year.

In the 2018-19 school year, Boys and Girls Lacrosse will be added to the stable of GMC sports.  The Greater Miami Conference is year-in-year-out considered one of the best high school conferences in the state and country.
