When the 2017 high school cross country season ended in December, Xavier was all alone.
For the first time in the history of the state, a team had swept the State Open, New England and Nike Cross Northeast Regional titles.
Four weeks. Three championships. One trip to Oregon for the National Championship.
It was an unprecedented feat.
On April 6, 2018, Xavier High School will honor all 36 members of this game-changing team with a special dinner at St. Clement's Castle in Portland. From the team's talented underclassmen to the the seven that help lead Xavier to the tightest State Open win in state history, everyone had a hand in getting the team to the finish line this season. And we felt it was only right to to hold a proper event commemorating their remarkable achievements.
So if you can, please join us for a rare one night celebration of the program's return to glory. You can purchase tickets by following the link provided on Facebook or by going to: https://www.xavierhighschool.org/athletics/team-directory/cross-country.
We're hoping the night will serve as a tribute to a proud program with members of the Xavier community, new and old, joining us.
If you have any questions, please email Xavier Director of Communications Matthew Conyers at email@example.com.
We can't wait to see everyone.
