The Allstate Sugar Bowl Track & Field Classic, held each spring (scheduled for March 18-19 in 2016), is recognized as one of the top high school track and field classics in the Southeast region. Since 1993, this event has been the largest high school track and field invitational in Louisiana, featuring over 100 boys and girls teams and 2,000 student-athletes from Louisiana and surrounding states. The event is held in Tad Gormley Stadium, a recently-renovated facility which has hosted numerous track and field events, including the U.S. Olympic Trials. Admission is $5 per day while children 12 and under may enter free of charge.

"Since coming on board in 1996 as the sponsor, the Sugar Bowl has made it possible to transform what was once a modest local event into one of the premiere high school track & field meets in the country," said meet director Mike Corn. "The Allstate Sugar Bowl Track & Field Classic has become a fixture on the schedule of many teams from throughout the South and continues to generate greater and greater interest nationwide. I think that the Sugar Bowl Committee recognized some time ago that high school sports are vital to our community and they have made a financial commitment to student athletes who take part in those sports, providing them with opportunities to compete in first class events that most probably would not have otherwise."
Hoover High School from Alabama swept the boys' and girls' titles at the 2015 Allstate Sugar Bowl Track & Field Classic to become the first school in the 23-year history of the event to accomplish that feat. The Buccaneer boys from Hoover piled up 73 points to edge Memphis University School from Tennessee, which finished with 66 points. On the girls' side, Hoover cruised to a dominant victory, tallying 106 points to win its first title in the Allstate Sugar Bowl Classic. Whitehaven High from Memphis was second with 69 points.
