Altavista - Altavista had a big sendoff for both its girls and boys basketball teams, who play state Final Four games on Thursday. The Colonels don't plan to leave until Thursday morning, but with the strong likelihood of no school Wednesday, better get that pep rally in now. And Altavista did just that. The Colonel boys are slated to play J.I. Burton Thursday at one, the girls face Clintwood at 3, both first-time opponents for Altavista.
