The Evergreen Conference (previously the Tri-Normal League, 1920–1938, and Washington Intercollegiate Conference, 1938–1947) was an intercollegiate athletic conference composed of member schools located in the states of Idaho, Oregon, and Washington and, for a time, the Canadian province of British Columbia.[1] The league existed from 1938 to 1984.[2] Most of the conference's members subsequently joined the Columbia Football Association.
