Altamont had 13 different girls gain points for the team. Mary Allen Murray, Kalia Todd and AJ Kutsch earned over 20 points each. The trio of Sophie Cornelius, Abby Sharff and Amelia Pak placing 1st, 2nd and 4th in the pole vault was an emphatic exclamation point to a dominant team performance. State champions, girls – you did it!!
