The Madill boys track squad took home a championship in 1964.
The sports facilities have been renovated since 1998. That includes creation of Tom Reynolds Softball Field. The Alumni Field was renovated. The baseball field received a makeover in 2005 before hosting the Lake Country Conference tournament. The new weight room and fitness facility became reality in 2006. Alumni Field received a new scoreboard in 2007. A new track surface was installed in 2009. The Wildcat Fieldhouse has seen improvement with new scoreboards in 2010 and air conditioning in 2014.
