Xavier High School - Cedar Rapids, Iowa

Saints put the clamps on Prairie girls

Xavier Coach Tom Lilly said before Friday night's girls basketball game that he wanted to score at least one more point than Prairie.

He didn't say how many points that might be, but it turned out it didn't have to be many.

No. 11 Xavier jumped off to a 19-1 lead and cruised past Prairie, 43-14, at the Saints gym.

'X' marks the championship spot

The lane that leads into the Xavier High School parking lot is cleverly called the Avenue of the Saints, but it also could be called Championship Alley.

The private school on the northeast side of Cedar Rapids has won 21 state titles since 2003, making it one of the most successful schools in the state, regardless of size or classification.

Xavier has won six state titles in girls soccer, four in boys soccer, three in girls basketball, two in girls cross country, two in boys cross country, two in boys track, one in baseball and one in football.

“Some schools are known as a football school, some are known as a basketball school,” said Mike Winker, Xavier’s activities director. “I’m very proud of the fact that it’s been multi sports.”

Xavier offers 19 varsity sports for boys and girls, and the Saints have won state championships in eight of them. They’ve won at least one state title for eight straight years and claimed six titles in 2006.

Richardson goes to Xavier, swims for Cougars

 

John Richardson is a man with two high schools, and not just any two schools.

They are Xavier and Kennedy, the northeast Cedar Rapids neighbors, the Battle of 42nd Street and all that jazz.

So that’s exactly what he does. He goes to Xavier, but swims for Kennedy. Richardson is a full-time student at Xavier, but he loves to swim and Xavier does not have a team. Thanks to school rules, he’s eligible to swim for Kennedy because he lives in the Kennedy district.

T.J. Sayre finally a full-fledged Hawkeye

IOWA CITY — The guys on T.J. Sayre’s intramural basketball team at the University of Iowa are out of luck this year.

He’s not eligible for IMs anymore.

Sayre is now an official member of the UI men’s basketball team, a fifth-year senior who hasn’t played organized ball since he graduated from Xavier in 2006. Last year intramurals, this year the Big Ten.

Sayre spent 1 1/2 years at Creighton, but didn’t play varsity ball there. He transferred to Iowa in January of 2008 and has been in Iowa City ever since, but didn’t play here, either.

Until now.
