Allstate Sugar Bowl Track & Field
The Allstate Sugar Bowl Track & Field Classic, held each spring (March 21-22 in 2014), 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 more than 100 boys and girls teams and nearly 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.

"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."
Ten meet records fell at the 2013 Allstate Sugar Bowl Track & Field Classic, including two of the meet's longest-standing records: the 4x100 boys’ relay (40.84, Karr High School, breaking a 1993 record) and the long jump (24-11.5, Devin Scott, West Jefferson High School, breaking a 1994 record). The team winners were John Curtis Christian School on the boys' side and McDonogh #35 on the girls' side. Edna Karr took second place for the boys while UMS-Wright (Mobile, Ala.) was the girls' runner-up.
