  • Football - The school's football team has won 13 TSSAA state championships, second only to rival Maryville High School (14) for the most in state history. Seven of these came in 2004-2010 in Class 2A and later Class 3A, during which the team recorded 84 wins and only six losses, including a 43-game winning streak that was ranked among the best in the nation.[3] The win-streak ended when Alcoa was defeated by Maryville at the beginning of the 2011 season. Randall Cobb, who was drafted by the Green Bay Packers, is among the football alumni from that championship stretch. The team's latest championship came after a victory over Christ Presbyterian Academy in the Class 3A finals in 2013.
  • Men's Soccer - The men's soccer team made it to the state tournament in both the 2009 and 2010 seasons under coach Tom Gorman. They were runners-up in the 2009 state championship, the best outcome since the program's start.[4] The team is currently coached by Shane Corley.
  • Golf - Three individuals have won the TSSAA State Golf Tournament Individual title in the school's history, the most recent being in 2010.[5] The golf team is coached by Rob Daugherty.
  • Softball - The softball team is coached by Mike Brown.
