Boys' Sports

Girls' Sports

The school's two athletic State Championships were made by the Girls' Softball team in 1990, finishing with a (20-6) record, and individually by Hunter Lewis (2011) in the Triple Jump Event with a long jump of 44 ft. and 6 in. However, despite the lack of State Championships, the school's athletic teams and individual student athletes routinely compete in post season play. In 1996, the baseball team finished 3rd in the state tournament. The football team, in 1973, lost in the Class A State Championship to Dyer County by a score of (31-26) for a (12-1) season record and continue to advance into post season play on a regular basis. Both the boys & girls Basketball teams routinely participate in the state basketball playoffs as well.

A new sport is making its way to Sequatchie County High school as a new lacrosse club is starting at the school. Since lacrosse is not yet an officially recognized sport by the TSSAA, the school will be sponsoring the club in preparation of it eventually becoming a sanctioned sport.

The SCHS boys' team will be the thirty-first boys' lacrosse team in the state and the third public school in East Tennessee; the girls' team would be the twenty-eighth in the state and the first public school lacrosse program in East Tennessee. The school is also beginning its second year with a boy's wrestling program.
