Speaking of State Championship Teams

Behold the 1963 Xavier High team, state champions. The young man who is second from the front on the left side did fairly well for himself later on in life. This year is the 50th anniversary of XHS basketball and for the most part it's been a highly successful run. We'll probably have a few more vintage posts of this sort over the course of the next few months.

The loudest gym in Wisconsin ... bar none. Remember sitting by the stage and watching Mickey Crowe do his thing? Lots of great memories in that gym.

I do remember it well. So many good times in that gym. Senior year against Lourdes in particular, when we just blew those boys out of the gym. But there were others -- the nailbiter against Pacelli, the victories over Premontre, the time when Wittenberg-Birnamwood came in ranked in the top 5 and left with a 30+ point loss. It was great - such a great part of growing up.
