Arrowhead saw its run of 11 consecutive Large Schools Division (enrollment over 1000 students) trophies come to an end at the hands of Middleton last season, but after the 2019 fall sports season, a different schools sits ahead of both. Brookfield East had a huge fall sports season, headlined by state titles in football and girls swimming/diving to lead with 428 points, also the top overall score of any school regardless of size. The Spartans' boys soccer teams also finished as state runners-up, while boys volleyball advanced to the state semi-finals and the girls tennis and boys cross country squads provided solid finishes as well. Arrowhead is second with 392 points, while Middleton, Muskego, and Brookfield Central round out the top five.

Shorewood is on top of the Medium Schools Division (enrollment 500-100), as the Greyhounds claimed state titles in boys soccer and girls cross country. Boys cross country and girls swimming/diving also put up good points for the Greyhounds' athletic program. Shorewood scored 335 points overall, which leads McFarland's 315. The rest of the top five includes defending champion Catholic Memorial, Xavier, and Freedom.

Edgewood has seven Medium School trophies to its name, including the last two years (in the Small School division in 2018-19 and the Medium Schools division in 2017-18). The Crusaders again lead the way in the Small Schools Division (enrollment below 500). Edgewood has a slim lead over Aquinas, winner of eight WSN Cup trophies, after fall sports, as their 230 points narrowly edges out the Blugolds. Edgewood got state titles from girls golf and girls swimming and diving once again. The rest of the top five features Lourdes Academy, Lake Country Lutheran, and Regis.
