The Airedales were state runner-up to Jacksonville in 2013.

The 2005 championship was the first for the Alma boys basketball team. He won it the same day his wife Madelyn Flenor guided her team with Chanlee Bottoms, to win the girls title.

Athletic Director Doug Loughridge said no decision had been made as of Monday  as to whether the school district will choose the next coach from within the district or conduct an outside search for a coach.
