State Champions! On November 10, 2018, at Oakville Indian Mounds Park in Danville, Alabama, Altamont's boys cross country team won the AHSAA Class 1A-2A State Cross Country Championship, bringing home the blue map for the first time since 2001. Senior Asher Desai finished his illustrious cross country career at Altamont by becoming the first individual male state champion in Altamont history with a time of 16:31. James Dixon (4th), Spencer Skidmore (5th), and James Gregory (14th) each achieved All-State honors, and Jack Engel rounded out our top five.

State Runner Up! Altamont's girls cross country team edged out Hatton by one point to win the AHSAA Class 1A-2A State Cross Country runner up title, bringing home the red map. Eighth grader Ariel Dean was All-State with a 7th place finish. It was a true team effort to pull off this feat, with special recognition to Camille Oliver and Arden Campbell for going above and beyond to ensure Altamont would be honored as second in state.

Congratulations to our teams! We are so proud of you.
