The boys and girls golf teams both made state appearances in 2006 & 2007, with the boys winning the tournament in 2006. The cross country has sent a runner to the state meet five times, most recently being 2010, 2011, and 2012. The football team has also seen recent success under co-head coaches Bruce Held and Steve Diediker. Since moving to the toss offense in 2001, Hinton has reached the state playoffs 5 times, advancing only once in 2012 to the championship game against Wapsie Valley, Fairbank and taking state runner up (21-14).[7] Both boys' and girls' track teams have seen success over the years. Recently, the boy's team won the 2012 1A district meet which was held at home, coach Diediker and the Boys' team's fist district championship trophy. The teams have sent numerous runners, jumpers, and throwers to the state meet over the years including the boy's 2013 distance medley team, Blake Mossberg, Morgan Wenzel, Tyler Yates, and Drew Schiltz, who took first in class 1A and set a new school record of 3:39.03. Also in 2013 for the 1A girls' team, Lauren Hedlund achieved 3rd place in the 400 Meter Hurdles with a time of 1:05.46 and Kasey Reuter achieved 3rd in the Long Jump with a leap of 16 feet 11.50 inches.[8]
