Kim Alger was a name to be reckoned with in female varsity sports at Barnstable High School at a time when female athletics were just beginning to truly vye for equal attention and critical acclaim.

     As a Red Raider innovator, Alger knew few bounds and she is the first-ever female high school All-American in the history of the school after shattering hurdles records with every step she took in the spring of 1976.

     The top scorer in girls basketball and the true leader of the girls field hockey team, Alger’s claim to fame would come in the spring on the track. In the spring of 1974 as a sophomore, Alger helped lead the first-ever all-female varsity spring track & field team at BHS and just prior to that competed with the boys in an effort to help break ground on the movement.

     A brilliant student and equally brilliant athlete, Alger’s name shall be forever enshrined in the halls of Barnstable High School as one of the best that ever was.
