The Stockbridge Tigers track and field teams scored more than 200 points each, and that was enough to give the school a sweep in the 2005 Henry County Championships.

In the girls meet, Stockbridge scored 202.50 points, to beat second place Union Grove (142-points) by 60.5 points.

In the boys portion of the meet, Stockbridge put even more distance between itself and the rest of the field. The Tigers scored 202 points. Union Grove was also second in the boys event, scoring 122 points.

In the girls event, Stockbridge's victory was paced by Natrice Young, who captured three individual events, and also helped the Lady Tigers win the 4x100 relay team.
