Archbishop Alter High School - Sports - Rivalries


Alter High has a number of sports rivals. The school's biggest football game each year is against arch rival Kettering Fairmont High School (Ohio). This game is held on the Friday following Alter High School's first week of classes. Chaminade-Julienne High School is also a big rival. The game is the last one of the season every year and always brings a sellout crowd. Rival Carroll High School is becoming a bigger rivalry game each year, as it is becoming more important in the outcome of the GCL.

Basketball rivalry games are very similar, including games against Fairmont High School, CJ, and Carroll High School. Alter High School's boys' soccer team has two significant rivals: Carroll High School and Centerville High School. The girls' soccer team names Hamilton's Stephen T. Badin High School and local Centerville High School as their biggest nemesis.

The volleyball team's recent rise to prominence has spurred rivalries of its own. After capturing the state championship in 2006 and back-to-back championships in 2002 and 2003, Alter is known as the team to beat. Within the GGCL, Roger Bacon is the biggest rival (they captured the volleyball state championship in 2004 and 2005). Additionally, Chaminade-Julienne and Cincinnati Archbishop McNicholas prove to be perennial challengers.
