XHS has won the 2012 MVC Valley Divisional Fall Sportsmanship Award for outstanding sportsmanship by our coaches, players, and fans!

On August 15th, 2012, students spilled into the gym to start the Xavier’s 15th year of existence with Mass. Mr. Keating called students and staff to live with the mindset “Like Mary, we say ‘yes’ to the impossible”, and encouraged all to strive to excel and document their progress by hashtagging “#ouryear”. As the Saints attended their first football game, giggled through The Odd Couple, threw themselves into tough classes, and crowned seniors Bryan Banowetz and Shelby Christensen Homecoming King and Queen, #ouryear began to take shape. Numerous teams were sent to State, countless members of the community were served, and singing Saints overtook stages left and right. The student section filled with fans cheering for #xaviernation as they threw up baby powder, balloons, a eights months later, #xaviernation has the chance to look back at #ouryear - a year full of #s year overflowing with #thingsduaneschultetaughtme, whether those things were instilled in choice to listen to Mr. Keating’s weekly reminder to #leanintoit or complain about #catholics Division 1 ratings, and A+ grades.

You know what week it is. It’s Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast Week, and your life may never be the same...


and confetti. And that was just the beginning. Now, as the school year begins to wrap up saintsamongus and students road tripping as #saintsinaug and #saintsinlando. It has been a class, on the field, or at the welcome home after the State football game. Students had the schoolprobs, and those who chose to #leanintoit were rewarded with State championships, he photos, the memories, the records, and, of course, the hashtags. Before the crazy season ack and reminisce through #ouryear, and remember that it’s not yet over.
