Ashwaubenon High School is also known to excel in athletics and are supported by the school's "Jaguar Backers", a parent-operated fund-raising committee. The Jaguar football team won the WIAA Division 2 state championship in 1996, 2000, 2001, and 2005, in addition to runner-up trophies in 1993 and 1998. The softball team has participated in the state tournament a state record 17 times and has won four Division 1 state championships in 1992, 1993, 1994, and 2006, with a second place finishes in 1980 and 2004.
New Orleans Saints running back Aaron Stecker played for the Ashwaubenon High School football team in the early 1990s. His number, 27, was retired during the halftime of an "Aaron Stecker Night" themed football game with their rivals, Bay Port Pirates. Stecker won a Super Bowl ring with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2003.
The Jaguars enjoyed great success in the 2005-06 academic year, the "Year of the Jaguar," as AHS won the Division 2 state football title, both the boy's and girl's basketball teams advanced to the state tournament with the girls winning the title in dramatic fashion, the girl's softball team won their fourth Division 1 state championship, and Erin Havener won the Division 1 pole vault at the WIAA State Meet.
