The Sunbright Track and Field Team was begun by Sara Trail in approximately 2012.  Tara England took over as head coach in approximately 2019 to present.  The program has been successful throughout its existence.  There have been athletes who have gone on to run at the collegiate level and compete at the TSSAA State Meets.
Currently, this is the only track and field team in Morgan County.  So students from other Morgan County high schools can participate in the program.  Since Sunbright is a PreK-12 school, Sunbright 8th-grade students can participate and compete on the team.
The track and field season begins in February and runs through May.  The team, as of the 2024 season, has a track on campus to practice on each day.  However, we cannot host track meets.  So all meets are away.  Seasonal meets are typically held at schools in Knox, Campbell, Anderson, Loudon, and Fentress Counties.  Parent support is used to transport athletes to and from meets.
Both male and female athletes on the team have the option to practice and compete in the following events: 100-meter dash, 200-meter dash, 400-meter, 800-meter, 1600-meter, 3200-meter, 100/110-meter hurdles, 300-meter hurdles, 4x100 relay, 4x200 relay, 4x400 relay, 4x800 relay, long jump, shot put, and discus.
This team is grateful for the support of the community and loves the environment of being on the track!  It is like no other sport.  So come and check us out.  The smiles you see will blow you away.
