    For the first time in school history, Summit High is a state champion in football.

    The team defeated Oak Ridge High 28-7 December 4 to win the Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association (TSSAA) 5A state championship.

    "We are so proud of our young men," said SHS football head coach Brian Coleman. "It is extra special to win a state title this year with the many obstacles these players had to overcome. We want to thank the parents, school and administration for all their support throughout the year."

    Summit High wasn't the only WCS team to make it all the way to the title game. Brentwood High School took on Oakland in the 6A division finals, but the Bruins lost to the Patriots by a score of 56-33.

    "I am so proud of all the WCS coaches, players and families for making the season happen," said WCS Athletic Director Darrin Joines. "Early in the summer, a state championship seemed like even more of a dream than a normal year because we weren’t even sure games would take place. Congratulations to Coach Coleman and Summit for bringing home the school’s first team state championship. Brentwood’s runner-up finish was special as well. Congratulations to Coach Crawford, his staff and team for making the championship game for the first time since the school’s State Championship in 2002."
