Despite winning district championships in every major high school sport, Buffalo Gap's primary source of both local and state-wide commendation has been for its running programs. The girls' track team has won the 2004, 2005, 2006, and 2007 Single A Virginia High School League State Championship Track Meet, and the boys' cross country team has placed second in the VHSL State Championship Race (2000) and has won the State Cross Country Meet twice. The girls basketball team won the state championship in 1984 and were runners-up in 1983. In 2007, the varsity football team completed a perfect 14-0 season, winning the school's first state championship in football.

In March 2008 and 2009, the Varsity Girls Basketball team won back to back Group A Division 1 State Championships.
