Julie Beckwith

Altamont's boys team won the 2019 AHSAA Class 2A Track & Field State Championship, held May 3-4, 2019, at Cullman High School. The Knights brought home the blue map for the first time since 2006, emerging from a deep and competitive field of more than 40 2A schools. The team was anchored by many strong performances, including James Dixon's state-record-setting run in the 800 meters, earning him the gold medal for the third consecutive year. James was also State Champion in the 1600 meter run, and Cole Hall was State Champion in the pole vault.

Altamont's girls team finished 4th in state with many outstanding individual and relay team performances. Congratulations to all of our athletes on an excellent season. Complete State Meet results appear below.
