As the dust settles on another outdoor track season in Tennessee, a few teams stood out.

We don't have a "meet of champions" in Tennessee. At least not yet. But that doesn't mean we can't think about what one would look like.

There were lots of close team battles at this season's state championship in Murfreesboro. And a few athletes got the chance to make their PRs even better at the Music City Distance Carnival and New Balance Nationals. So let's see who the top teams were this season.

We took the top three teams in all four divisions and put them into one championship. Then, we used their season best times to construct one state championship out of the top twelve teams at state.

Here were the results.

Brentwood Academy takes the top spot this season in outdoor track just like they did in cross country last fall. The Eagles boast a deep distance corps, a good sprints group and excellent field events.

All of those athletes would also score in a meet of champions. Starting with Michael Archie and Camron Johnson in the field, BA would score major points.

Even though they finished second in the state last month, Cleveland High School checks in at number two. Eric Parker and Benjedi Casseus are elite in any division. And Keegan Jones is the fastest sprinter for 100 and 200 meters in this virtual meet of champions.

I mean, just look at those hurdles points.

Jett Kinder and Brentwood round out the top three -- like their counterparts down the road in Williamson County, the Bruins are deep in the field. And Kinder is turning into one of the stars of the state at any classification.

His points in the field would be enough to put the Bruins near the top of a meet of champions. Kinder is a big reason why.
