The first Nashville City Track Meet Championship was held in 1953 under the name of the Banner Relays sponsored by the Nashville Banner afternoon newspaper and was won by T.P.S. The boys meet remained under the sponsorship of the Nashville Banner until 1986. At that time the Optimist Relays, which had been a regional meet started in 1960, took over the boys city championship in 1987 and the Banner Relays became a regional Mid State track meet. The Optimist Relays continued the meet until the early 1990s when the Murfreesboro Road Optimist Club dropped sponsorship of the meet and the meet became the Nashville Track and Field Championships which has run continuously until today. The Metro girls championship was started by the Optimist Relays in 1966, which was first won by Haynes, and has continued to be the girls Metro championship when the meet transitioned to its current Nashville Track and Field Championships. We are happy to announce that this will be the 66th straight year of the boys championship, the 53st straight year of the girls championship, and the 59th straight year of the Optimist Relays/Nashville Track and Field Championships. The Optimist Relays/ Nashville Track and Field Championships has only been held at four sites in the past, Overton, TPS, McGavock, and Harpeth Hall. We hope all Nashville schools will join in the celebration of this continuing event now returning to McGavock High School for the 2018 track season.
