More than a third of students in grades 6-12 are involved in a sport. At EHS, students can participate in baseball, boys’ and girls’ basketball, cheerleading, cross country, football, boys' and girls' golf, boys’ and girls’ soccer, softball, swim team, tennis, track, volleyball, and wrestling. At T.A. Dugger, students can participate in football, baseball, softball, girls’ and boys’ soccer, cross country, wrestling, cheerleading, girls’ and boys’ basketball, girls’ and boys’ track, and volleyball.  Sports offerings vary at elementary schools but include Girls on the Run and Wildcats Running Club. Our teams are the EHS Fighting Cyclones with the mascot “Tuffy,” the TAD Junior Cyclones, the ESE Pirates, the HME Hurricanes, and the WSE Wildcats. Football is class AAA, and all other sports are class AA.

Thanks to community support in 2015-16, new and upgraded athletic facilities include the new Citizens Bank Stadium, Indoor Softball Hitting Facility, the resurfaced LaPorte Track and the renovated indoor pool. Cyclone pride is strong in Elizabethton because residents see the opportunities for our alumni through athletics, like former Cyclone tight-end Jason Witten, who is now a 13-time All-Pro NFL athlete.
