The seniors of Altavista's boys soccer team.

The Colonels encountered a strong opponent in Appomattox on June 2. It was senior night, and though Appomattox came out on top, ACS coach Lemuel Curran said he saw significant improvement from the Colonels. He also said the team was able to use its bench for a significant amount of time in the game.

“The seniors and the captains wanted everybody to get playing time,” Curran said.

The final score was 5-0 Appomattox.
