  • 1934:   Started using the point system to determine team champions.
  • 1965-1974:   Combination of round robin dual meet and championship results determined the team champion
  • 1986-1993:   Singles tournament was held but not sanctioned by the conference.
  • 1994:   Reinstituted singles championship.
