NOTE: The current Upton-Sundance Patriots team exists in co-op form only; there is no “Upton-Sundance High School.” Football is the only sport in which these schools have a co-op agreement. … The North Big Horn team was a co-op between Deaver-Frannie and Cowley and existed solely in name as the co-op. There was never a “North Big Horn High School,” only a North Big Horn football team. … Programs in Guernsey and Basin did not go defunct due to a closing of a school. Instead, these schools changed their names, school colors and mascots when combined with another school (Guernsey combined with Sunrise to form Guernsey-Sunrise; Basin combined with Manderson to form Riverside). They exist as separate programs as part of this project, although the same school facilities, coaches and players may have been included in the “opening” of the “new” school. … Worland Institute was also known as the Boys School, Colter High School or Worland Industrial. Technically, the school is still open, but it is not a member of the Wyoming High School Activities Association. … Team records for Cowley also include early records for the Big Horn Academy.
